Entomologist Robert Hamilton Retires

Loyola professor Robert W. Hamilton retired from teaching and research on January 1, 2013.

Professor Hamilton received his MS and PhD in entomology from The Ohio State University while working with Drs. Barry Valentine and Donald J. Borror.

Professor Hamilton has taught and researched at Loyola University of Chicago for over 40 years. He was just recently awarded the honorific title of Professor Emeritus by the university provost.

His taxonomic work on weevils in the families Attelabidae and Rhynchitidae has resulted in many publications in various entomological journals. His private collection of New World weevils has been donated to the Field Museum of Natural History (FMNH) in Chicago, where it will be readily available to future workers.
