Townsend, The inside history of North American myiology (photocopy included with collection), which appeared in the Journal of the New York Entomological Society vol. 33, no. 1 (Mar. 1925) and which Aldrich considered defamatory -- Letters are from Aldrich or Charles W. Johnson, writing on Aldrich's behalf, with replies from members of the publication committee of the Society (3 from Harry B. Weiss, editor of the Journal; 1 from Frank E. Lutz).

The collection consists of folders and envelopes containing drawings of mollusks, many in color, with handwritten notes and descriptions. There are also some black and white photographs -- The drawings are on paper of different sizes, ranging from 1 1/2 or 2 inches to regular 8 1/2 by 11 inch letter-size sheets. The larger sheets contain several illustrations per page. Many of the drawings are identified or annotated in pencil. Almost all of the material is undated. One small envelope, postmarked 1898, was sent to Katharine J. Bush, Verrill's collaborator on the U.S. Fisheries work. Another envelope, with a 1930 postmark, was sent by A.L. Treadwell to R.W. Miner, curator in the AMNH Dept. of Invertebrates. A torn envelope labeled Bermuda contains photographs. Subjects written on folders of drawings include Purpura lapillus, Loligo pealii, Ensis directus, Littorina, and Nudibranchs
