Founders

The Georgia Entomological Society recognizes significant and selfless contributions to science and the GES by means of the GES Founders’ Lecture Series, a program that the society began in 1990. The Founders’ Lecture serves to honor the individual to whom the lecture is dedicated, and additionally serves to recognize a scholar/researcher of the Society who has contributed significantly and historically to the advancement of our science and/or whose research is at the cutting edge of his/her subdiscipline.
