NATHAN BANKS
A BIOGRAPHIC SKETCH AND LIST OF PUBLICATIONS Nathan Banks was born at Roslyn, New York, on April 13, 1868. After attending the Roslyn sch~ools, he went to Cornell University, from which he received the Bachelor of Science degree in 1889. His early interest in natural history, which was apparent even in boyhood, developed during his college days into an enthusiasm for entomology that never diminished. Graduate studies at Cornell, under the super~isi~on of Professor J. H. Comstock, led to the Master of Science degree in 1890. Later in that year he was appointed to a position in the Bureau of Entomology of the United States Department of Agriculture in Wash- ington, where for twenty-six years he did research on the taxonomy of insects and arachnids.
As the years passed, however, Banks became dissatis- fied with the Washington position. One of his concerns was the safe housing and maintenance of his private col- lection of insects, which, as a result of exchanges with numerous entomologists in many countries, had attained extraordinary size and significance. In 1904 he wrote to Samuel Henshaw, the newly appointed director of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, inquiring about the pos- sibility of a position there. Henshaw was unable to ar- range for an appointment at that time, alth'ough he gave Banks definite encouragement for the future. Nearly ten years later, 1913, the appointment became something more than a hope. Towards the end of that year Banks wrote Henshaw: "When I get to the Museum I shall not expect to publish much for several years, as I

expect the curatorial work and sorting and identification of material will take up all my time." This kind of work did in fact take up much of his time for most of his work- ing life, although it did not stop his publishing on his re- search. It was partly his willingness to do such work that enabled him to build up a magnificent insect collec- tion at the Museum of Comparative Zoology. The appoint- ment was, however, delayed nearly three years longer, and in the interval Banks was offered a position by another museum in this country, specifically the curatorship of Thysanura, Arachnids and Neuroptera. He refused this offer, however, pointing out that "he rather fancied him- self an entomologist", not just a specialist in a few orders. By early 1916 definite provisions for the appointment at the Museum of Comparative Zoology were made by its governing board. Banks shipped his collection and library to the Museum during early fall and finally moved to Cambridge in November.
Banks7 collection, which was donated to the Museum on his arrival, constituted one of the largest and most valuable entomological collections ever received by the Museum. It
included more than 120,000 specimens, of which 1,800 were types. His library, also given to the Museum, contained about a thousand pamphlets and books not in the Museum library.
The Annual Report of the Museum for 1916-17 con- tained the following reference to the new curator: "The
permanent staff of the Museum has been strengthened by the appointment of Mr. Nathan Banks as Curator of In- sects. During the early years (1863-1867) of the Museum, the entomological collections were in charge of three As- sistants, Samuel H. Scudder, Alpheus S. Packard, Jr., and Phillip R. Uhler, later three eminent entomologists. In October, 1867, Dr. H. A. Hagen to'ok charge of the collec- tions, and during his term of service which lasted until his death, they were placed in the front rank of University collections. During the fifty years since Dr. Hagen's ap- pointment, the study of insects has become more and more specialized, and the Museum is fortunate in its appoint- ment of an entomologist whose training and interests in-

sure a broad and equitable consideration of the work of his department."
In 1928, as part of an initial step in the integration of the Department of Biology and the research staff of the Museum, Banks was appointed Associate Professor of Zo- ology. Although he gave no formal lecture course in the University, his informal instruction through research courses was invaluable to advanced students and became of even greater significance a few years later, when gradu- ate instruction in entomology was transferred from the Bussey Institution at Forest Hills to the Biological Labora- tories at Cambridge. In 1941, when additional curators were appointed in entomology at the Museum, Banks was designated Head Curator of Insects, a title which he held until his retirement in 1945, at the age of 76. Banks remained active for a few years after his retire- ment, working chiefly on the preparation of a catalogue of literature on the habits of insects, but his strength gradually failed him. He died at his home in Holliston, Massachusetts, on January 24, 1953, at the age of 84. He is survived by his wife (nee Mary A. Lu Gar) and eight children.
The contributions made by Banks through his publica- tions are truly impressive. His bibliography, given below, includes 440 technical papers, on many aspects of ento- mology. The majority of his early publications, from 1890 to 1900, were on arachnids, but most of his later ones dealt with the insect orders Trichoptera, Mecoptera, Neu- roptera, Perlaria and Psocoptera, on all of which he was a world authority.
Banks was a good collector, but he was too occupied with the Museum duties to make extensive trips. In 1906 he collected in the vicinity of the Black Mts., in North Carolina; in 1924 he made his longest field trip - to Barro Colorado Island, in the Canal Zone; in 1931 he made a collecting trip to the Smoky Mts., accompanied by his son Gilbert, and P. J. Darlington, Jr., and F. M. Carpenter. He also made extensive collections in the vicinity of his home; the collections at the Museum contain many thou- sands of specimens from Sea Cliff, New York; Falls

Church, Virginia; and Lexington and Holliston, Massa- chusetts - these being the successive locations of his home. Banks' greatest contribution to entomology was through his service and devotion as curator of the entomological collections. Having virtually no assistance at the Museum, he did the routine curatorial work on the collection, com- piled catalogues of types and genera, and prepared speci- mens for shipment tlo investigators in other institutions. The continued high rank of Harvard's entomological col- lection is chiefly the result of his efforts. The collection it- self is indeed a memorial to the devotion which he had for entomology.
He had a great capacity for work, a single-mindedness of purpose, and a good memory. It is a misfortune that his knowledge of the structural diversity and adaptations of insects was not more available to biologists. This was partly his fault. He had not learned the modern vocabu- laries of genetics and evolution. Moreover, Banks, feeling that he was too busy, did not join the smoking and con- versation group on the Museum steps in mid-morning and mid-afternoon, further restricting the circulation of his knowledge. Nevertheless he liked people and liked to talk, and was kind, helpful, and had a sense of humor. The foll~owing list of Nathan Banks' publications is as nearly complete as we can make it. Since he kept no record of his own papers, we have had to compile this list from many sources. We are indebted to Miss Jolane P. Baum- garten and Miss Ruth Dunn for assistance in the prepara- tion of the bibliography. A few additional publications by Mr. Banks will undoubtedly come to light; we would ap- predate being informed of them, so that we may include them in a subsequent list.
