BOWMAN, Kenneth (1875-1955): was born in Durham, England in 1875, graduated from Dulwich College and emigrated to Alberta in 1904. After a few years of ranching at Pine Lake, south-east of Red Deer, he moved to Edmonton in 1906 and became a chartered accountant. Having a keen interest in natural history he roamed the Edmonton district to collect Lepidoptera, expanding his collecting territory annually to include Nordegg, Jasper-Pocahontas, and Hillcrest-Blairmore regions. In 1919 Bowman updated Wolley-Dod's checklist of Lepidoptera of Alberta but kept adding to this from the collections he made up to 1944. In 1951, with the help of E.H. Strickland, he published a revised list of the Lepidoptera of Alberta which contained 1800 taxa, nearly twice that of his former list. Although he was an inveterate collector he was not a taxonomist, preferring that others name the specimens he captured. However, he did name one species that he collected at Wembley, but its true identity is still in doubt. His extensive and meticulous collection was deposited at the University of Alberta after his death in 1955.
