"Charles F. Harbison, curator of entomology at the Natural History Museum, Balboa Park, San Diego, California, attended the meetings of the Entomology Society of America, which convened in Philadelphia from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3. Most of the North American (or San Diego County) tarantula are gray, but this year a dark (almost black) specie has begun to appear in San Diego... Mr. Harbison brought this one (which is alive) with him and visited Harvard University at Cambridge, Mass., where they have the original dark specimen taken in San Diego in 1903, with which he hoped to compare the one he caught but he visited Harvard day before Thanksgiving and skeleton staff on duty wasn't;t able to help him... He is returning to California without knowing whether his specimen is new or a re-appearance of the 1903 variety..."
