Doug,
     As a student, I was assigned the task of finding some obscure reference on some obscure topic deep in the library's catacombs. I eventually found the citation, but just next to it, I found the text from a speech given by John LeConte on the status of Natural History Museums. I was not smart enough at the time to copy it or to write down the citation, but even back in the mid 1800s, simple things like under funding and under staffing were a major problem. Nothing has changed since them. Linnaeus would probably agree.

Subject: 1949-2012: How little things have changed...

In the process of tracking down the original description of a local 
fly species, I just now came across a 1950 paper entitled "The role 
of the entomological museum" (Pan-Pac. Ent. 26: 1-10), which is the 
text of Ed Ross' speech when retiring from the Presidency of the 
Pacific Coast Entomological Society, in December of 1949. There 
unfortunately do not appear to be any versions of this document 
online, but I would encourage those of you who have access to the 
1950 volumes of Pan-Pac Ent. to look this one up, and give it a read. 
Aside from a few minor anachronisms (like licking postage stamps when 
mailing out loans), this speech could practically have been given 
yesterday. The things Ed laments are still, by and large, lamentable, 
and the things he hopes for the future are, by and large, still only 
hoped for (e.g., a centralized file with a complete list of all type 
specimens and their depositories). It came as no small surprise to 
see how little things have changed in over 60 years. Pretty sobering, 
really.

Peace,
--
