The History of Shipmast Locust
Abstract:The introduction of the shipmast locust to Long Island from Virginia has been quite generally credited to a Captain John Sands. Dr. Raber has made a detailed study of the historical evidence for this belief and concludes that the origin of the shipmast locust is obscure and that when and by whom it was introduced to Long Island is unknown.
