Izard, Alfred David (1863-1968)

Chiefly a mountaineer rather than an insect collector, but accompanied K.H. Barnard and C.W. Thorne on mountaineering expeditions where he assisted them with collecting. Barnard named the stag beetle Colophon izardi after him. Read his account entitled "Idlewild", all about an expedition he did with them to the Langeberg mountains in the Riversdale district.
