Dear all,

does anybody knows the whereabouts of the insect collection of the Boston Society of Natural History? The Society transformed into the Boston Museum of Science which doesn't mention any collections on its webpage.
I am looking for material from John Witt Randall. Randall's collection is apparently lost, but he gave material to Thaddeus William Harris. The Harris collection went to the Boston Society of Natural History in 1858.

Any ideas?
