Dyche, Lewis Lindsay, zoölogist, was born at Berkeley Springs, W. Va., March 20, 1857. In early life he came to Kansas, and in 1884 he received the degrees of B. S. and B. A. from the University of Kansas. During the years 1885-86 he was assistant professor of zoölogy, and in 1886 he received the degree of A. M. He was then made professor of comparative anatomy, which position he held until 1890, receiving the degree of M. S. in 1888. From 1890 to 1900 he was professor of zoölogy and curator of birds and mammals, and since 1900 has held the chair of systematic zoölogy and taxidermy. Prof. Dyche has made more than a score of scientific expeditions, covering North America, from Mexico to Alaska, including Greenland and the Arctic regions, and as a result of his work the University of Kansas has one of the largest and finest collections of mammals in the world. A collection of these specimens was exhibited at the Colombian expedition at Chicago in 1893 and excited much favorable comment. On Oct. 4, 1884, Prof. Dyche married Miss Ophelia Axtell of Sterling, Kan. He has lectured at various places upon the subjects with which he is so well acquainted, and has contributed articles on zoölogy and kindred topics to the leading magazines. In 1911 he was appointed state game warden and fish commissioner, a position for which he is admirably fitted by his long training as a student of animal life, the habits of birds and mammals, etc.
