David Sharp FRS (15 August 1840 - 27 August 1922) was an English physician and entomologist who worked mainly on Coleoptera. David Sharp was born at Towcester on 18 October, 1840. Some twelve years later his parents removed to London, where therefore, as a boy he received his education. After attending one or two preparatory schools, in 1853 he entered St. John's Foundation School which was then at Kilburn. At the age of seventeen he commenced to help his father, a leather merchant, and about the same time he began collecting beetles, some of his favourite haunts being Ken Wood and Hammersmith Marshes, as well as the sandy shores about Deal and Dover. As it was found that he had a great distaste for a business life, it was decided that he should qualify as a doctor.show more
