Edward O. Wilson (June 10, 1929 - December 26, 2021)

Edward O. Wilson was a biologist, naturalist, and author along with being an Alabama native. Called "the father of sociobiology" and "the father of biodiversity," and nicknamed “Ant Man” for being the world’s leading expert on Ants, Wilson was considered a pioneer across the world. Wilson showed us how some of the smallest creatures could answer the biggest questions.
