Biography:

Leopold Josef Fitzinger (1802-1884)

Fitzinger was a vertebrate biologist who contributed to the field of zoology. He arrived at the Natural History Museum of Vienna as an unpaid trainee at the age of 15 charged with arranging the reptile and fish collections at at time when the institution was reshaping itself from a royal “collector’s cabinet” to a scientific research institution. At 19 he accepted a position as secretary to the Lower Austrian legislature, while continuing to attend to the collection. His most significant scientific contributions were his published works on reptiles, turtles and amphibians, published between 1826 and 1861, as well as a catalog of mammals, reptiles, and fishes native to the Archduchy of Austria based on numerous field trips (1832). Fitzinger obtained a permanent curatorial position at the museum in 1844, and was placed in charge of the reptile and mammal collections.
