1 Newsletter Spring YEARS OF EXCELLENCE Entomology The Great and Powerful OZ In October 2012, Dr. John Osmun passed away at age 94. What s Inside From the Head Bug: John Osmun Department News Development Update Outreach Update Entomology Students Alumni News Calendar 100 Some people are born with a driving passion that helps them change the world and influence generations. Dr. John V. Osmun was such a person. His passion? Bugs. When I visited West Lafayette in 1971 to interview for my faculty position, John came to meet me at the airport, says Entomology Professor Tom Turpin. We hopped into his little burnt orange sports car, and he quoted Robert Frost, announcing, It s a bluebutterfly day here in spring! His energy and enthusiasm were contagious not just that day but every day. He was absolutely passionate about entomology, and he instilled that passion into every student and colleague who was fortunate enough to work with him. THE EARLY YEARS. For 39 years a member of the faculty and for more than 60 years a professional of the pest management industry, Osmun Oz as he was known to many of his colleagues and students played an unparalleled role as educator, researcher and regulator. He served as a chief entomologist for the U.S. Army and as a research entomologist with Merck & Co. before meeting s J.J. Davis in Davis asked Osmun to join the faculty and develop a program in urban entomology. Several months later, in 1948, Osmun did precisely that. As assistant professor of entomology, he made history by developing and teaching the first four-year curriculum in urban and industrial entomology. His goal was to further the work that had been done by Davis to establish urban entomology as a highly respected, professional field. John was a leading light in establishing national and international recognition of entomology as a profession, says Contech Enterprises Chief Scientific Officer John Borden. Although he was always soft-spoken and unassuming, John was a true leader, whose dedication to professionalism lives on in legions of Board Certified Entomologists. In 1950, Osmun made history again, by forming Pi Chi Omega with six of his students Bill Brehm, George Gilmore, Frank Harder, Harlan Shuyler, Clifford Weiss and Clayton Wright, each of whom went on to earn his own place in pest management history. The professional fraternity now boasts 450 members from eight countries and supports education and camaraderie throughout the pest management industry. THE GROWTH YEARS. Upon Davis retirement in 1956, Osmun was appointed head of s Entomology department, a position he held until During these 16 years, he led the department to phenomenal growth in terms of both size and reputation. Laboratory and field research became interactive, classes broadened in scope and diversity, and extension efforts, including the correspondence course that has become one of s signature programs, grew. He took leave from the university in 1972 to work on termites in Australia for a year while on sabbatical, then moved to Washington, D.C., in 1973 to work with the Cooperative States Research Service and as the first director of the Operations Division of the EPA, where he helped set the earliest performance standards. Osmun returned to in 1975 as a professor of Entomology and coordinator of s pesticide programs. He retired in 1987 as professor emeritus. Though long retired as a professor emeritus by the time I was a doctoral grad student at in the 1990s, Oz became for me a great mentor, friend, fellow entomologist and urban pest management colleague, says Kathy Heinsohn, technical and training entomologist at American Pest, Fulton, Mary(Continued on page 2)

2 Steve Yaninek From the Head Bug John Osmun We in the Department of Entomology celebrated our centennial the week John passed away remember that he was associated with the department and for nearly two thirds of a century. He was the last living faculty member with direct connections to the 1940s and 1950s. I would like to think John knew there would be alumni coming to town for the centennial celebration that week, and gave those who dropped by a chance to say goodbye before he passed away. John was destined to be an entomologist. His first memory of insects was reaching out from his perambulator for a caterpillar from his older brother. He became a passionate insect collector, and at the age of 13 learned an important lesson about the dangers of pesticides. While hiking in the Massachusetts woods, his buddies found him passed out on the trail. John didn t realize that the killing jar charged with potassium cyanide in his pocket had cracked when he slipped and fell earlier that day. He was taken to a local doctor who found nothing to treat and released him. John continued to have persistent headaches until days later when another doctor figured out what happened, and eventually treated the acid burns on his leg scars John carried proudly his entire life. His professional life has been well chronicled. He studied entomology as an undergraduate and as an MS student in Massachusetts, and served as an entomologist in the army during WWII. He then joined Merck to develop insecticides and was lured to in 1948 to create a new program on urban pest management. While on the faculty at, John completed his PhD from the University of Illinois, and became our department head, overseeing the major expansion in faculty during the 1950s and 60s that still defines us today. He took a leave of absence to join the USDA Cooperative State Research Service in 1973, then he worked for the EPA Office of Pesticide Programs until 1975 to establish the national pesticide applicator s training program before returning to where he finished his career in John will be remembered for many things, particularly his ties to the pest management industry, and his dedication to our students. Soon after he started at, a couple of his students, William Brehm and George Gilmore started B&G Equipment Company in Today B&G is a successful multi-million dollar operation that distributes novel spray technology worldwide thanks to innovation, design, and quality of construction attributes William and George learned from John while at. The early graduates in urban pest management started a fraternity for pest control professionals called Pi Chi Omega in 1950 under the guidance and mentorship of John. Today the fraternity is comprised of nearly 450 members from 38 states and 4 foreign countries and includes some of the most distinguished, dedicated, and talented professionals in the industry something John was especially proud of. John s fondness for alumni spawned the establishment of the department annual alumni recognition award known as the John V. Osmun Professional Achievement Award in Entomology. Started in 1987, it honors his long career, professionalism, and the great respect he had for entomology alumni. We honored Rob Wiedenmann as the 22nd recipient of this award the week John passed away. His distinguished career also led alumni and friends to establish the J.V. Osmun endowed professorship in the Department of Entomology. John was a friend with lots of stories, an incredible knowledge and memory about and the department, and a sincere interest in the future of entomology. He was an icon in our discipline and a unique figure in the history of our department. John will be missed, but never forgotten. ~Steve Yaninek~ land. He got to know us students because, even into his late 80s, he still came into the office every day. HONORING AN ICON. Upon his retirement, an award fund, The John V. Osmun Alumni Professional Achievement Award in Entomology, was established in honor of Osmun s numerous and enduring contributions to and the industry. Recognizing and promoting high achievement and professionalism in entomology and related fields, it is bestowed upon a degree-holding alumnus of the Department of Entomology. The 2012 award went to Rob Wiedenmann, professor and head of the Department of Entomology at the University of Arkansas, a world renowned expert on invasive species and biological control, and the current president-elect of the Entomological Society of America. More recently, Osmun s legacy was celebrated through the establishment of the John V. Osmun Endowed Professorship. Pest control companies, distributors and others involved in the pest management industry contributed $1 million in funding. Once the endowment reaches its target goal of $1.5 million, it becomes an endowed chair, which will be used to recruit and retain a professor who will be charged with conducting timely research that is immediately applicable to the pest management industry. Like many of Osmun s efforts, it will facilitate the advancement of the pest management industry. On Oct. 13, 2012, during Entomology s centennial celebration, Osmun, one of the most universally respected educators in the pest management industry, passed away at the age of 94. Once again, he was honored with a special tribute: the Dr. John Osmun Memorial Scholarship, established by Pi Chi Omega to recognize each year s strongest scholarship applicant. Gary Bennett, coordinator of the Center for Urban and Industrial Pest Management, worked closely with Osmun for many years. Anyone who knew John, whether related to or not, would call him a mentor and friend, Bennett said. He knew all of our students and pest management people all over the world, and if he knew you, he helped you. He was a good guy. We will miss him. Reprinted with permission of PCT magazine

One of our alumni, Jennifer Gordon (BS 08) now at Kentucky, won third place in the PhD competition. Other alumni in attendance were OVEA president Jonathan Larson (BS 09), and Goshen assistant professor Andy Ammons (PhD 07). Kapil Raje I grew up in the city of Mumbai which is home to more than 20 million people. As a child, I was fascinated by nature. Science in general and biology in particular was one of my favorite subjects. My grandfather was instrumental for instilling in me the love for plants, animals and birds. I had decided in high school that I want to be a plant scientist but I had never imagined that I would become an entomologist one day. In fact, I don t remember having an interesting experience with insects as a child. However, I do recollect some not so pleasant experiences related to insects. Every year, the advent of monsoon would bring lots of blood-sucking mosquitoes inflicting painful bites and skin rashes. An occasional cockroach wandering into our house would make my aunt recoil in horror. Caterpillars hidden in fresh vegetables from the markets were the most repulsive creatures for my mother. Sometimes bumble bees and big flies wandered into our house only to be vehemently driven away by my father. In fact, I don t remember anyone in our family having much fascination for insects. However, my parents were always supportive of the fact that I wanted to make a career in plant science. After finishing high school, I left Mumbai to pursue BS in Horticulture from Konkan Agricultural University (KAU), Dapoli. During my BS, I attended the introductory entomology course by Dr. K. V. Naik and I came to know how fascinating insects are as well as the crucial role they play in nature. KAU was an idyllic place that abounded in an astounding array of From India to Indiana! biodiversity. This place is situated near the Western Ghats which is one of the major biodiversity hotspots on our planet. The beauty and diversity of insects such as jewel beetles, longhorned beetles, rhinoceros beetles, butterflies, luna moths, silk moths, praying mantises, stick insects and dragonflies left me mesmerized. By this time, I had made up my mind of becoming an entomologist. After my BS, I appeared for the All India Entrance exam for Entomology and Nematology conducted by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research and secured admission for MS at Panjabrao Deshmukh Agricultural University at Nagpur campus. During my MS, under the stewardship of Dr. R. W. Gawande, I studied the efficacy of biopesticides alone and along with chemicals against the gall fly Dasyneura lini Barnes which is a major pest of flaxseed. While in Nagpur, I came in contact with Dr. P. S. Burange who was then pursuing his PhD at North Dakota State University. He inspired me to pursue further studies in the United States. After finishing my MS, I appeared for the GRE and TOEFL exams to apply for the US Universities. In Fall 2007, I came to University to pursue my PhD under the stewardship of Dr. Jeff Holland and Dr. Virginia Ferris. I had always wanted to learn molecular techniques and ecology was a subject very close to my heart. I consider myself very fortunate to have had such an interesting project that incorporated both these components. My research project involved predicting invasive longhorned beetles using molecular tools. Using partial sequences of 12S rrna and COI genes as molecular markers, I inferred the phylogeny or the evolutionary history of the longhorned beetles. The presence of phylogenetic signal in invasion-promoting traits was helpful in identifying potential invasive longhorned beetles. While pursuing my PhD, I also got many opportunities to teach and was able to volunteer for many service activities. Being a student in Entomology was a very unique experience in itself. And I thank Dr. Ferris and Dr. Holland for providing me with this wonderful opportunity. ~Kapil Raje~ 6

7 Alumni News Pi Chi Omega Creates Dr. John Osmun Memorial Scholarship John V. Osmun The Pi Chi Omega board created the Dr. John Osmun Memorial Scholarship at the PestWorld Convention in Boston. This new scholarship will be the top scholarship offered to the best student applicant each year. Pi Chi Omega is pleased to honor Dr. Osmun in this manner, recognizing his vast contributions to the industry, Pi Chi Omega, and Entomology. Robert Michael Brattain (BS 73) retired in 2009 after a 38 year career as Safety and Environmental Manager for Tate & Lyle s Lafayette, Indiana Sagamore Robert Michael Brattain Operation. A career highlight was setting a new Corn Wet-Milling Industry safety record of 2.8 million employee hours worked without lost-time incident. I became interested in insects while participating in a 4-H project during junior high school. I have maintained this interest throughout my adult life and have since studied and collected beetles throughout North America and Canada. I am currently conducting research at the Shades and Indiana Dunes State Parks identifying and documenting the beetle diversity within these two unique areas. Mike and his wife of 44 years, Joyce, have two children and two grandchildren. David W. Fincannon (BS 82) recently wrote to let us know he has been creating some Moments in Entomology videos and placing them on his YouTube channel. To view these videos (there are 22 of them!) you can access them through this link: Marlin Bergman (PhD 83) completed 25 years at DuPont-Pioneer as Senior Research Manager in Maize Product Development. Memories: Life in the grad student bullpen in Entomology Hall was a interesting experience! Unfortunately, I wish I could forget when I left the water running in a sink but clogged the drain in Turpin s lab on Marlin Bergman the 2nd floor that ended up with water on the first floor in more than one office/lab! People I remember? Too numerous to name it was good! Personal Life: Still married to my best friend (Sheree). One son (Ryan) in Ames, Iowa and one (Adam) in Houston, Texas. Still bass fish all that I can and am looking forward to even more - if/when retirement comes along! Ian Smith (BS 07) During his years, Ian had a vision and the determination to create a foundation which would encourage inner-city students and help them focus on completing their education. Now, the Ian Ian Smith Smith Foundation in Indianapolis, Indiana is doing exactly that. Founded in 2005, volunteer mentors are paired with at-risk youth to provide the impetus and encouragement they need to succeed. Mentors are recruited from the community, and students from nearby IU- PUI are often the first to volunteer. With a Entomology small but dedicated staff, Ian currently does the bulk of the outreach activities. In addition, each summer a Teen Summit is held to help motivate students facing another school year after several weeks of summer vacation. The half-day event includes speakers, entertainment, food, community resources, and attendees (about 250) receive school supplies to get them in the mood for the coming academic session. Ian is deservedly proud of his Foundation, and of being a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship finalist last year. Unable to take advantage of the fellowship at that time, he plans to re-apply, for the opportunity to acquire additional education and to qualify to teach basic STEM subjects: science, technology, engineering and math. Emily Kraus (BS 07) went on to complete an MS in Entomology at Kansas State University. Her favorite work was in the Michel laboratory where she was able to work on experiments involving Plasmodium bergei. They infected mice and then allowed mosquitoes to feed on them. After dissections Emily used a confocal microscope to capture images of the parasite in the mosquito midgut and salivary glands. Emily Kraus August has been amazing! I joined the Peace Corps and have been in Senegal, West Africa. My primary work involves teaching sustainable agriculture techniques to people in my village of 1300, as well as nearby villages. I also collaborate with volunteers in other sectors. I have done work in bed net distribution, nutrition talks, and baby weighing. Emily will finish her service in September and hopes to return to graduate school in the fall of 2013 in the public health field. 7
