The museum and the scientific community lost two tremendous colleagues in 2019. Dr. Oliver (“Ollie”) Simeon Flint, Jr. was a former VMNH Senior Research Fellow, former VMNH Trustee, and a world renowned expert on caddisflies. Dr. Joseph (“Joe”) Calvin Mitchell, was a former VMNH Research Associate and widely regarded as the leading expert on the herpetofauna of Virginia. The lives and careers of these two great colleagues were highlighted in a recent issue of Banisteria, the semiannual journal of the Virginia Natural History Society.
