Peer-Review Article



In an earlier paper (Wilkinson, 1969) I suggested that Townend Glover (1 81 3-83), the fust United States Entomologist, was the "Mr. Glover" credited with the invention of the first known portable light trap for the collection of study specimens, announced in the English Entomologist's Monthly Magazine (Knaggs, 1866). The history of the well-known "American Moth Trap" was traced in my 1969 paper. but I had not then discovered the obvious antecedent of Glover's device.
