I have had communication with the California Academy of Sciences, and that's where the Tinkham collection ended up.  

Thanks, everyone.  We have a great community here!

I am very curious to know where Tinkham's collection ended up after his death due to his former association with the UA collection. I vaguely remember at one point his collection was kept at his residence, maybe in his garage, and sustained some serious dermestid damage. I might have a copy of a letter from him stating the condition of his personal collection and will try to dig it up.


Cheers,

Gene

One more question about loans from the Pleistocene.  I have a box of katydids borrowed long ago by Ted Cohn that were to be returned to Tinkham.  Where did Tinkham's collections go after his death?   

Many thanks in advance.
