Abstract:

The collection consists primarily of Bean's handwritten correspondence with other entomologists and collectors. Some replies are typewritten or carbon copies. Many of Bean's outgoing letters are included, either the originals or letterpress copies. Papers also include some of Bean's notes on his work, and extracts of four published articles: two from The Canadian entomologist (vol. 22, nos. 6-8, June-Aug. 1890; and vol. 27, no. 4, Apr. 1895); one from The entomologist (vol. 26, no. 362, July 1893); and one from Psyche (vol. 7, no. 228, Apr. 1895).

Substantial amount of Bean's correspondence is with W.H. Edwards (one box, 1875-1895); and F.H. Dod (one folder); other correspondents include James S. Bailey, Nathan Banks, William Barnes, G.W. Belfrage, David T. Bruce, Albert F. Conradi, S.W. Denton, H.J. Elwes, J.H. Emerton (about spiders), James Fletcher, John H. Gerould, A.R. Grote, Samuel Henshaw, H.H. Lyman, Edward T. Owen, Henry Skinner, John B. Smith, Herman Strecker, the Rev. George W. Taylor (about shells), and C.E. Worthington. Correspondents from letterbook only include S.E. Cassino, C.H. Fernald, G.H. French, Edward L. Graef, H.A. Kenyon, William H. Leggett, B. Pickman Mann, H.K. Morrison, F.W. Russell, and Alfred Wailly. Additional material includes correspondence of Lucy Clune, administrator of Bean's estate, with John H. Gerould and Cyril F. dos Passos, culminating in dos Passos's purchase of Bean's entire collection of papers and specimens in 1936. Biographical information is supplied in letters from Bean's cousin Grace Wadleigh.
