Dr. Garman accepted a position as Entomologist and Botanist for the Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station from 1889 to1929. In addition to his works at the Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station, Dr. Garman also served as the Kentucky State Entomologist from 1897 to 1929. Dr. Garman authored numerous articles, papers, and experiments which were published in the Kentucky Agricultural Experiment Station Bulletins.Considered a naturalist, of particular interest to Dr. Garman were the study of stream pollutants and pollution in Kentucky streams, believing it to be "one of the most important subjects before the public in this country at the present time." Dr. Garman was associated with numerous botanical, entomological, and zoological organizations, including the Kentucky State Beekeepers Association, the Society for the Promotion of Agricultural Sciences, and the Zoologists of Central States. He died on August 7, 1944 in Lexington, Kentucky and is buried in a local Lexington cemetery. The Harrison Garman papers include correspondence and notes related to the Entomology files and research of Dr. Harrison Garman. Much of the correspondence is written on personal stationary and corporate letterheads which date from 1898 to 1912. It consists mostly of incoming correspondence from nurserymen, farmers, seed companies, chemical companies, apiaries, private individuals, foreign agricultural departments, the United States Department of Agriculture, and other Experimental Stations concerning questions and comments pertaining to the area of study that is listed on each folder. The correspondence pertains to concerns and questions raised by individual members of the community, his peers, and governmental organizations regarding topics in entomology. There are some newspaper clippings concerning pesticide use by the public during this time period.Professor Garman recorded his research and experiments in his own handwriting on small loose-leaf notepapers. The notes are dated, some with the experiment number, and several include hand illustrations of identified plants and insects. Professor Garman also created a notebook describing in detail the various species of Marine Biology in Beaufort, North Carolina, dating from July to September of 1881. In the notebook, he makes references to the works of Dr. W.K. Brooks, Fritz Muller, and [Charles] Spence Bate; all prominent scientists in their fields. The notebook is leather bound and measures 4" x 6.5".
