Biographical NoteReturn to Top

James Rodenburg Slater (b. 1890, d. 1989) taught biology at the University of Puget Sound for thirty-two years, from 1919 to 1950. Slater served in the U.S. Air Force during World War I, later receiving his undergraduate degree from Rutgers University and a graduate degree from Syracuse University (1917). Slater joined the biology faculty of the College of Puget Sound (now University of Puget Sound), in Tacoma, Washington, in 1919. He was founder and director (1930-1951) of the college’s natural history museum, which was later named after him. Professor Slater taught at CPS until the summer 1951, when he began teaching at Florida Southern College. Slater later returned to Tacoma where he continued his research as a herpetologist, focusing on the reptiles and amphibians of the Pacific Northwest. The University of Puget Sound awarded Slater an honorary doctorate.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The James R. Slater papers contain the personal and professional papers, books, photographs, and correspondence of Professor James Slater as well as numerous academic awards and medals of recognition received throughout his career. Slater’s papers offer insight into his involvement in the community of biological research and shows how he was connected to biologists nationwide. Incomplete manuscript papers in the collection include organism inventories and Slater’s graduate thesis. Some books in the collection are academic, though the collection also contains a small bible and literary texts. While most of the photographs are unidentified, a small number of photographs are of family members from the early twentieth century. There are also photographs of biological samples and landscapes. The Slater papers also hold a series of the University of Puget Sound's Slater Musuem papers and pamphlets labeled as the Jewett Collection.
