ABSTRACT— A list of the more than 300 pubHcations of Dr. Thomas EUiott
Snyder is presented. For those articles where new taxa were proposed, a list of
the new taxa is given.
During a span of 58 years. Dr. T. E. Snyder (Obituary, Proc. Ent.
Soc. Wash., 1971, 73:239-242) authored or co-authored over 300 arti-
cles, mostly on termites but many on other insects desti-uctive to forests
and forest products. Based on his notes, reprints. Bibliography of Ter-
mites and both Supplements (1956, 1961, 1968), and his Catalog of
the Termites of the World ( 1949 ) , the following complete compilation
of Dr. Snyder's articles is presented. This does not include many news
or press releases and mineographed reports. Dr. Snyder's interests
were broad, as his publications reveal, and deal with biology, control,
and taxonomy. He described over 170 new species and other taxa,
and these are listed, in parentheses, following the article in which they
appear. After his retirement and between 1952 and 1957, Dr. Snyder
ran a column in Pest Control called "Borer Lines" which account for
many of the articles during that period.
The first listing is those for which Dr. Snyder was sole author. This
is followed by the articles for which he was senior author and those
for which he was junior author. I have attempted to arrange the publi-
cations chronologically in the order in which they appeared in the
