"Live Army Ants On Display" featured live army ants brought from Barro Colorado Island In Panama, which were especially "timed" for their New York appearance. The exhibition was announced by Theodore A. Schneirla, Curator in the Museum's Department of Animal Behavior. The time factor was important in the selection of the colony so that the ants were in their active phase. The colonies were selected by Dr. Robert A. Brown, a member of the United States Public Health Services. The ants also appeared on the Museum's "Adventure" Program broadcast by CBS Television. The ants were on view in the Seventy-seventh Street Foyer of the American Museum of Natural History form August 28 through September 10, 1953.
Individuals and institutions involved in the creation of the exhibition: Columbia Broadcasting System Television; Theodore C. Schneirla, Curator of the AMNH Department of Animal Behavior.
