Popenoe Entomology Club

Edwin Popenoe

The Popenoe Entomology Club was founded in 1921, named for Edwin A. Popenoe (right; born in 1853, and died in 1913; faculty member at Kansas State from 1879-1897 and again from 1899-1907), the founder of the entomology program at Kansas State University (at his time it was known as Kansas State Agricultural College).

Club activities include, but are not limited to: opportunities for fellowship and professional development among students, funding opportunities for travel to meetings and other professional development activities; public education through demonstrations at the KSU Insect Zoo, KSU Open House, and area schools; outreach to the community by activities supporting 4-H and FFA youth clubs. Special Entomology Department activities include: hosting the fall picnic and enriching the seminar series by sponsoring a noted entomologist as a speaker.
