William M. Mann (1886–1960) was a notable entomologist and the fifth director of the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. from 1925 until 1956.[1] In 1921, he travelled on the Mulford Expedition to the Amazon. In 1926, he married Lucile Quarry Mann. The two worked together as a team to improve and promote the zoo, including going on expeditions around the world to collect live specimens for the zoo's collection.

Legacy[edit]

William Mann is commemorated in the scientific names of four species of reptiles: Amphisbaena manni, Lepidodactylus manni, Lygodactylus manni, and Typhlops manni.[2]
