William Beebe

Charles William Beebe (29 July 1877 – 4 June 1962) was an American naturalist, ornithologist, marine biologist, entomologist, explorer, and author. During deep sea bathysphere dives he observed several still-unidentified species, of which the only ones he saw clearly were the abyssal rainbow gar, the giant dragonfish, the five-lined constellation fish, the pallid sailfin, and the three-starred anglerfish. He also encountered Beebe's manta.[1]
