The New York Entomological Society was founded in 1862, and has since held a distinguished position among scientific and cultural organizations. On May 21, 1968, The Brooklyn Entomological Society consolidated with the New York Entomological Society. Members and subscribers are drawn from all parts of the world and include professional biologists, enthusiastic amateurs, and laymen for whom insects are only one amid many interests. The Society's Journal is among the oldest leading entomological periodical in the United States. Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month, October through May, at 7 PM at the American Museum of Natural History during which time a subject of biological and entomological interest is discussed by our invited speaker. No special training in biology or entomology is necessary for the enjoyment of most of these talks, most of which are illustrated.
