Frederick W. Nunenmacher

    I almost input 1963 as the year of collection for this one, but the tag itself seemed a lot older, so I decided to investigate. Confirming my suspicion, a short biography of Nunenmacher states that he died in 1946, meaning this specimen was probably collected in 1913. There are also several other inconsistent dates in the Essig Specimen Database. See the bottom four entries in this list which seem to indicate Fred continued his collection posthumously.
