The 'Bug-house Boys'


Author(s):
Abstract:
A group of teenage boys from Washington began a natural history museum known officially as the Washington Field Museum, but locally as the \"Bug-House Laboratory\" in one of the town's municipal buildings. The \"Bug-house Boys\" develop, maintain, and run the displays exclusively and gather most of the specimens which they also prepare. In 1935, 4,500 specimens had already been collected.
