|Title||Trevor Kincaid, University of Washington zoology professor, Seattle, 1927 |
|Caption||Trevor Kincaid established the zoology and botany departments at the University of Washington (UW) early in his career and served for many years as a professor and the head of the zoology department. Possessing a passion for insects since childhood, Kincaid's entomological endeavors took him to Alaska in 1899 on the Harriman Alaska Expedition and to Japan and Russia in 1908 and 1909 to study gipsy-moth parasites. In later years, his interests expanded to fresh-water plankton and oyster culture and he was instrumental in establishing the Japanese oyster industry in at Willapa Harbor. Kincaid Hall on the University of Washington campus is named in honor of Kincaid's contributions to the university.|
In this 1927 photo, Kincaid is closely examining an unknown specimen in a laboratory likely on the UW campus.
