Extended historical investigations have revealed some ninety-eight entomologists, mostly amateurs, who collected or studied insects in Texas from 1833 to 1880. The earliest of these naturalists appears to have been Thomas Drummond, Scottish botanist, who collected insects for William Kirby, in Austin's Colony in 1833-34. I list here with brief biographical notes twenty-three of the more noted or productive of these students and collectors.
