"Army Ants: A Study in Social Organization" was an exhibition based on the work of the psychologist T.C. Schneirla. Dr. Schneirla was a curator in the Department of Animal Behavior at the Museum until his death in 1968.The exhibit, pegged to the publication of his book by the same title, showed mounted specimens as well as slides of live ants, photographs of the research in progress, and various tools used in Schneirla's investigations. The exhibit served to point up the complex social behavior of army ants as explained in Dr. Schneirla's book. The book was edited by Dr. Howard R. Topoff, a research associate at the Museum. The exhibit was on view in the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Hall of the American Museum of Natural History starting in December 1971 and continuing through the month of January, 1972.
