★ Adulphe Delegorgue
Louis Adulph Georg Was a French Explorer, hunter and naturalist who traveled to South Africa in the 1840s and wrote about the region.
Georg was born in the family of a farmer and mayor of Courcelles, Adulph and his wife Marie Desfontaine. His parents died when he was very young, and he was raised by his grandfather Joseph, a councillor of the Douai court. At the age of 16, he began sailing around Europe, North Africa and the Antilles. At the age of 23, inspired by the writings of Le Vaillant, he sailed to the Cape of Good Hope, and then traveled to South Africa with J. A. Wahlberg and F. C. K. Krauss on Board the Mazeppa. In 1841 and 1842, he again traveled to South Africa, hunting and collecting artifacts for the museums of Paris and Douai. He hunted hippos, elephants, lions, and buffaloes, and began to write about his adventures in a two-volume published in 1847. A Glossary of the Zulu language was included in the second volume. In 1850, he again went to West Africa, but died of malaria on a ship and was buried at sea. Several species were named after the specimens he collected, including the birds Columba delegorguei, Coturnix delegorguei, and the bug Encosternum delegorguei.
