Biographies

George Compere was an entomologist and self-trained naturalist who worked for the California Board of Horticulture. From 1899 to 1901 Compere was sent to the Far East and Australia to search for parasites and predators of insects causing scale. While in Australia, the Western Australian Government became aware of his skills and hired Compere to find and import parasites of fruit flies (1901 -1904). From 1904 to 1910 George Compere was jointly employed by the California and Australia governments to search for insects beneficial to many of their primary crops. This work saw Compere continue to travel the world.
