Dr. Richard Hoffman

Entomologist Dr. Art Evans and WCVE producer Steve Clark note the recent passing of Dr. Richard Hoffman. Hoffman was the emeritus curator of the Department of Recent Invertebrates at the Virginia Museum of Natural History in Martinsville. He was a world authority on millipedes, a superb entomologist, and one of the last true Virginia natural historians. Richard will be deeply missed by all those who knew him.

Find out more about Dr. Hoffman’s contributions to millipede biology and Virginia natural history here.

Here is a link to Dr. Art Evans’ blog on Richard that originally appeared in the RTD in 2007.
