Biology professor featured in American Entomologist Magazine

James H. Oliver Jr., Ph.D (`52), was recently featured in the Winter 2016 edition of American Entomologist in a piece titled, “Ticks, Lyme Disease, and a Golden Gloves Champion.”

The eight-page-spread, written by Marlin E. Rice, captures the life and research of the Georgia Southern professor of biology emeritus, his contributions to the field and research in Lyme Disease.

In 2013, Georgia Southern named the James H. Oliver, Jr., Institute of Arthropodology and Parasitology, now the James H. Oliver, Jr., Institute for Coastal Plain Science, for the professor, who also served as a director for 19 years in the College of Science and Mathematics.
