Biographical note

Dr. Paul Lester Errington was born June 14, 1902 near Bruce, South Dakota. He earned a B.S. (1930) from South Dakota State College (University). He received his Ph.D. (1932) from the University of Wisconsin.

Dr. Errington joined the Iowa State faculty as a Research Assistant Professor (1932-1938) in zoology to establish and lead the first Cooperative Wildlife Research Unit in the United States. During his years at Iowa State, he was promoted to Research Associate Professor (1938-1948) and to Research Professor (1948-1962). Dr. Errington was considered an international authority on the phenomena of predation and automatic mechanisms of population regulation. His professional area of expertise included vertebrate ecology and population dynamics.

During his lifetime he was a member of numerous professional societies and was awarded the Aldo Leopold Medal in 1962. He wrote more than 200 articles and authored four books. His book Muskrat Populations (1963) was awarded the Iowa State University Press award for faculty publications in 1962.

Dr. Errington married Carolyn Storm in 1934. They raised two sons: Peter and Frederick. Dr. Errington died in 1962.
