Ernest Harris and Margaret Collins

Ernest J. Harris, Ph.D. (1928-2018), left, and Margaret Collins, Ph.D. (1922–1996), right, were honored via the Entomological Society of America’s Founders’ Memorial Award Lecture in 2020 and 2021, respectively. Harris was a distinguished entomologist internationally recognized for his work on fruit fly eradication and techniques for mass rearing of insects used for biological control. Collins was a legendary 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.
