Historical Note:
Edward Avery Richmond (1887-1970) was an entomologist specializing in the taxonomy and biology of water beetles. He received his Ph.D. from Massachusetts State College in 1930. Richmond held a variety of research and teaching posts between 1913 and 1957. Included were two positions with the United States Department of Agriculture. He was an entomologist with the Japanese Beetle Laboratory from 1924 to 1929 and a foreign plant quarantine inspector from 1945 to 1957. During 1944-1945, Richmond was stationed on Horn Island, off the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, as a health officer with the United States Army. He continued to conduct studies of the flora and fauna of Horn Island as a Research Associate of the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory from 1959 until his death. Richmond's collection of Coleoptera was donated to the National Museum of Natural History in 1972.
