World Directory of Systematic Entomologists

"The World Directory of Systematic Entomologists is [a gopher index] derived from lists of correspondents maintained for various reasons by offices, staff members and other affiliates of NMNH, [the National Museum of Natural History, the Smithsonian Institution]. The Directory includes all persons who have borrowed, lent, donated or sold specimens from/to NMNH. In addition, it contains the memberships of the many mailing lists maintained for purposes of newsletter mailings."
"The list presently contains over 6,000 names and addresses ... Some of the addresses are quite old (up to six years old), some of the persons listed are not entomologists .., and some names are duplicated due to differences in spelling or variations in the use of initials among the various newsletters." Research specialization and e-mail address are also provided in many cases.
The Directory is maintained by the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.
