Eleanor
Anne Ormerod
(1828-1901) was an English entomologist, considered a pioneer in the
field of studying insects. She was the first to define the field of
agricultural entomology.

She had an avid interest in insects from childhood, and contributed a
great number of insect specimens to the Royal Horicultural Society collections.
She was later appointed consulting entomologist for the Royal Agricultural
Society and lecturer at the Royal Agricultural College. In 1878 she became the
first female fellow of the Meteorological Society.
