Randall Morgan Insect Collection


A closeup on one of Morgan's specimensThe Randy Morgan Insect Collection is the product of dozens of years of collecting, curation and identification, originally started by Randy, but then continued by dozens of students, volunteers and experts over the last 30 years. The continued curation of these collections is a major focus of the Norris Center. 

You can read more about our efforts to carry on the legacy of Randy Morgan at the Randall Morgan Initiative website. That website also contains detailed accounts of Randy's collections (plant, insect, seed and associated field notes), and how to access them.

For those who just want to cut to the chase, Randy's specimens are searchable on SCAN.
