Jean-Henri Casimir Fabre (1823-1915) was a French entomologist and
author. He was largely an autodidact, owing to the poverty of his
family. Nevertheless, he acquired a primary teaching certificate at
the young age of 19. Fabre went on to accomplish many scholarly
achievements. He was a popular teacher, physicist, and botanist.
However, he is probably best known for his findings in the field of
entomology, the study of insects, and is considered by many to be
the father of modern entomology. He wrote a series of texts on the
subject over his life, collectively known as the Souvenirs
Entomologiques. Jean-Henri Fabre's last home and office, the
"Harmas de Serignan" in Provence stands today as a museum devoted
to his life and works. His other works include: Social Life in the
Insects World, Bramble-Bees and Others and The Life of the Fly:
With Which are Interspersed Some Chapter of Autobiography.
