Professor and Curator Emeritus Dr. Charles “Chuck” Triplehorn passed away on Thursday, August 25. Some of my best memories of Chuck over the 20+ years I’ve known him are his interactions with staff, students, volunteers, and visitors here at the collection. I thought it would be nice to celebrate his life and accomplishments by sharing some of these moments here. Chuck was generous with his time and knowledge, and very supportive of young entomologists. We’ll miss you, Chuck!
I’ll write about Chuck’s legacy here at the collection on an upcoming post.
