A world-renowned entomologist, Dr. Adams is the Dalton State Foundation’s 2012 Excellence in Teaching Award honoree.
“I liked bugs from age two,” Adams says, “but I got serious about it at age nine or 10, when I started to take good care of the specimens. My mom started me collecting; it took big time. I didn’t collect baseball cards; I collected butterflies and moths.”
Adams completed his doctorate at the University of Kansas, where he served as curatorial assistant for the university’s Lepidoptera collection, the first person to focus on it in almost a century. He came to Dalton State in 1990.
