Description


Excerpt from Catalog of Mollusca of South Carolina
In 1860 Lieut. J. D. Kurtz U. S. A. Published a Catalogue of the Recent Marine Shells found on the Coasts of North and South Carolina, which he had mainly collected during the years 1848 to 1852 while he was stationed at Fort Johnson, Charleston Harbor. Several new species were enumerated by him, many of which were published in conjunction with Dr. William Stimpson, who also made some important collections in Charleston Harbor and the immediate vicinity.
Prof. Francis S. Holmes was most zealous and painstaking in his labor of love in developing the riches of our local fauna in every division of the animal kingdom. I have elsewhere cited the admirable expression by Agassiz of his unbounded admira tion of the skilful and successful labors of Professor Holmes during the first fourteen months of his administration as curator of the old Museum of the College of Charleston, and no future sketch of the zoological, botanical, and especially paleontological work done in this state can fail to give high honor to his Splendid activity and enthusiasm.
Dr. William Hume, for several years professor of chemistry at the South Carolina Military Academy (the Citadel) had a small collection, as had also Miss A. M. Annelly, which latter, I think, had more of an aesthetic than a scientific value.
