Cora Huidekoper Clarke (1851-1916)


Series II. Photographs

Series Description:

Series II. Photographs belongs to the Gray Herbarium Archives. The photographs, taken by Clarke around 1914, represent the plant galls made by insects that Clarke reared and collected in and around the Boston area. Especially common are photographs of plant galls made by Cynipidae and Cecidomyiidae, families of gall wasps and gall midges, respectively. The photographs are separated into volume one and two, corresponding to the original organization of the albums from which they came. Most pages of the volumes have two photographs. Spaces where photographs were missing at the time of description have been noted.
