The late ceramic-mosaic artist Mark Rivera (1971-2021) of Davis: He made his mark and his mark was magical. Here he helps install art at #ucdavis bee garden in May 2013 with #entomologist/artist Diane Ullman, professor and former chair, Department of Entomology and Nematology; and artist/educator Donna Billick, directors of the UC Davis Art/Science Fusion Program. Celebration of life set June 10. To quote author-poet Anita Krishan: “We are mosaics—pieces of light, love, history, stars—glued together with magic and music and words.” See more on #Bug Squad blog at https://bit.ly/3x60g4l

Bravo to two legendary #entomologists! Emeritus Cooperative Extension specialist Vernard Lewis selected to deliver #ESA Founders' Memorial Lecture on the late entomologist/civil rights activist Margaret Collins, aka "The Termite Lady." Sharing love of termites, science and public service. Born in Institute, W.V a., on Sept. 4, 1922, Margaret was recognized as a child prodigy at age 6, "as evidenced by her being awarded the privilege to check out books at the West Virginia State College Library," Lewis wrote. Following her high school graduation at age 14, she went on to receive her bachelor's degree in biology from West Virginia State College in 1943, and her doctorate in zoology in 1949 from the University of Chicago. Her thesis: Differences in Toleration of Drying among Species of Termites (Reticulitermes). She was one of the first African-American women to receive an advanced degree related to zoology/entomology. #BugSquad
