"The Entomological Society of Ontario, having been founded in Toronto to encourage the study of insects, moved its headquarters toLondon in 1872. Soon after, in 1890, it produced four sections dedicated t o the study of botany, ornithology, geology ana microscopy. Thus there flourished in London, until 1906, a sort of informal Academy of Science whereincitizens of London could attend sessions for the study of insects, plants, birds, rocks ana microscopic objects. The activities of these organization s also fostered the interest of people who became well known in London in their fields of study—Saunders, Dearness, Bowman, Woolverton and others. This book details the development of the Entomological Society and its sections in London and provides intriguing accounts of the people who participatedin it." (from the dj). Contents : 1.
