This short article traces themes found in the papers of Dr. Edith Marion Patch who accepted a position in 1903 at the Maine Agricultural Experiment Station at the University of Maine as one of the first female entomologists in the country. She was well known both for her work as a scientist, particularly in the study of aphids, and as an author of several books for children.
