Abstract:

This diverse collection includes correspondence, field notes, lecture and meeting notes, publication material, drawings, and lantern slides. It documents Weber's professional career as an internationally known myrmecologist, or ant scientist, and his wider ranging interests in entomology and ecology.

There are class and lab notes for his educational period at Harvard University (M.A. 1933, Ph. D. 1935), and substantial documentation on his primary academic career at Swarthmore College, including teaching records, data on the Biology Dept., and the college. His fieldnotes, 1930s-1970s (ca. 3 linear ft.), contain detailed observations of the many scientific expeditions of which he was a member, including trips to the West Indies, 1933-1936; Colombia, 1938; Sudan, Uganda, and Kenya, 1939. He also participated in numerous American Museum of Natural History expeditions to Central Africa, 1948; Middle East, 1950, 1952; and Tropical America, 1954.

There are data for his time as visiting professor at the University of Baghdad, Iraq, 1950-1952, and his period as Scientific Attaché to Buenos Aires, for the U.S. Dept. of State, 1960-1962. Weber's contributions to polar scientific studies can be studied through subject files on polar research and his files on the National Academy of Sciences' Committee of Polar Research, 1958-1960, for which he was on the panel on biological and medical science. There is substantial material on the Entomological Society of America, and on such local ecological groups as the Chester-Ridley-Crum Watersheds Association, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
