Richard Sawyer

Richard C. Sawyer spent his early childhood in the citrus belt of southern California, where there used to be orange trees.  He returned to attend the University of California, Riverside, from which he received a B.S. in biology before spending a year bicycling around the United States.  In spite of his background, Sawyer developed his interest in the history of citrus and biological control only after entering the University of Wisconsin, where he earned his Ph.D. in history of science.  After a postdoctoral year at the University of Pennsylvania, he changed careers.  Sawyer now teaches high school biology and mathematics.
