We are looking forward to seeing you either in person at the awards breakfast or online as the awards presentation and the Founders' Memorial Lecture will be live streamed.
Vernard Lewis, Ph.D., BCE, emeritus cooperative extension specialist at the University of California, Berkeley, has been selected to deliver the Founders' Memorial Award lecture at Entomology 2021, the Annual Meeting of the Entomological Society of America (ESA).
At Entomology 2021, the subject of Dr. Lewis' lecture will be Margaret Collins, Ph.D. (1922–1996), a legendary Black entomologist and civil rights advocate whose five-decade career earned her the nickname "Termite Lady," for her foundational contributions to scientific understanding of termite desiccation resistance.
