Gene Kritsky, a native of North Dakota, grew up with an interest in natural history.  As a kid, he collected fossils in Montana and the Dakotas, and insects in Florida.  As a teenager he was enthralled by egyptology and greatly influenced by the writings of Charles Darwin.

​Kritsky received his BA in Biology from Indiana University in 1974, and his MS and PhD in Entomology from the University of Illinois in 1976 and 1977 respectively.

​He received a Fulbright scholarship in 1981-2 to teach at Minya University in Upper Egypt. During that experience he visited 94 archaeological sites and even was locked inside an Egyptian tomb.

​Kritsky joined the faculty at Mount St. Joseph University in 1983 and currently serves as the Dean of the School of Behavioral and Natural Sciences. He teaches a number of courses including Biology I and II, Entomology, Evolution, Marine Biology, and Dinosaur Biology. His research interests include periodical cicadas, the history of beekeeping, insects of ancient Egypt, paleobiology, and Charles Darwin.

​He lives with his wife, the artist Jessee Smith, in Cincinnati, Ohio. [1]




Who were they?… Why did they come?… What did they leave behind?… Where did they go?… Will they return?…
