April 22 – Dick Smythe

Dick Smythe


One was a woman – the other a man

One was born to modest means – the other to wealth and privilege

Both died tragically young

Both left us an imperishable legacy

Dick Smythe is an entomologist retired from the research division of the US Forest Service. Before kindergarten he started collecting feathers and insects. In college he majored in biology, then earned a PhD in entomology. Throughout his lifetime, Dick has maintained an interest in the natural world. He is active in a number of environmental organizations, is an avid reader, especially in the biological sciences and theology, and enjoys being out-of-doors throughout the year.
