Excerpt from The Canadian Entomologist, 1898, Vol. 30

We are happy to be able to begin the thirtieth volume of the canadian entomologist by presenting. To our readers an excellent portrait of dr. James fletcher, whose name is a household word among entomologists, not only in Canada, but throughout North America, and in many parts of the world besides. Born and educated in England, Dr. Fletcher came to this country, when a young man, as a junior officer in the Bank of British North America, and soon began to devote his leisure hours to the study of insects and plants. Finding the work ofa bank by no means congenial to his literary and scientific tastes, he Obtained a position as assistant in the Library of Parliament at Ottawa. It was not long before his talents and attainments in botany and entomology became-widely known, chie y through his contributions to this magazine and the annual reports of our Society. His first paper in the latter was an article on Canadian Buprestidae, which was published in 1878, while his first contri bution to this magazine appeared in January, 1880. During all the years that have followed no volume of either publication has been issued with out some valuable articles from his pen.

In 1878 he became a member of the Council of the Entomological Society of Ontario, and every year since has been elected to hold some office in the Society, being four times vice-president, and for three years, 1886 - 8, president. In 1879 he was one of the originators of the Ottawa Field Naturalists' Club, the most successful society of the kind in the Dominion, and more recently he suggested, and by his in uence and energy accomplished, the formation of the important Association of Economic Entomologists of North America.
