Wikipedia: Jean Louis Rodolphe Agassiz (May 28, 1807 – December 14, 1873) was a Swiss born biologist, paleontologist, glaciologist, geologist and a prominent innovator in the study of the Earth's natural history. He grew up in Switzerland and became a professor of natural history at University of Neuchâtel. Later, he accepted a professorship at Harvard University in the United States. In 1837 Agassiz was the first to scientifically propose that the Earth had been subject to a past ice age.
At Neuchâtel Agassiz completed his monumental, exquisitely illustrated Recherches sur les poissons fossiles (1833-1843), a book that brought together much of what was then known about fossil fishes and that did much to stimulate future research into extinct life of all kinds. During his years at Neuchâtel , he also completed the Nomenclator Zoologicus (1842-1846), a vast annotated list of all generic names that had been used in zoological nomenclature from the time of Linnaeus.
Through his Harvard years of teaching future prominent scientists, Agassiz had perhaps the greatest influence of any single individual in the 19th century on the future course of American zoology and geology. But he is now remembered primarily for his ice age theories and for his opposition to the theory of natural selection.
