  • Rolf Singer (June 23, 1906 – January 18, 1994) was a German-born mycologist and one of the most important taxonomists of gilled mushrooms (agarics) in the 20th century. After receiving his Ph.D. at the University of Vienna in 1931 he worked in Munich. By 1933, however, Singer was forced to flee Nazi Germany to Vienna. There he met his wife, Martha Singer. From Vienna, Singer and his wife went to Barcelona, Spain, where Singer was appointed Assistant Professor at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Persecution by the Spanish authorities on behalf of the German government forced Singer to leave Spain for France in 1934. After a fellowship at the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris, Singer again moved, this time to Leningrad, where he was Senior Scientific Expert at the Botanical Garden of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. During his time at the Academy, Singer made many expeditions to Siberia, the Altai Mountains, and Karelia. In 1941, Singer emigrated to the United States. He was offered a position at the Farlow Herbarium as a research associate, then as Assistant Curator, then as acting Curator following the death of Dr. David Linder. He spent a total of seven years at the Farlow. During this time, Singer also received a Guggenheim Fellowship for studies in Florida, and taught at the Mountain Lake Biological Station of the University of Virginia. In 1948, Singer left Harvard to become professor at the Universidad Nacional de Tucuman in Argentina. Later, in 1961, Singer became professor at the Universidad de Buenos Aires. During his time in South America, Singer, his wife, and his daughter Heidi collected extensively. Singer's last faculty appointment was at the University of Illinois at Chicago, from 1968 to 1977. Singer was a prolific writer, with more than 400 publications to his name. He was also known for his eagerness to aid other botanists, whether they were professionals or amateurs. He wrote major books like "The Agaricales in Modern Taxonomy". He fled to various countries during the Nazi period, pursuing mycology in far-flung places like the Soviet Union, Argentina, and finally the United States, as mycologist at the Field Museum in Chicago. The standard author abbreviation Singer is used to indicate this individual as the author when citing a botanical name. (en)

  • Già in tenera età mostrò interesse alla micologia, tant'è che all'età di sedici anni, nel 1922, aveva già pubblicato i suoi primi 5 lavori. Si diplomò in chimica e biologia nel 1931 a Monaco di Baviera e nel 1933 vinse il dottorato di ricerca all'Università di Vienna. Nel 1933, tuttavia, fu costretto a fuggire dalla Germania nazista a Vienna dove conobbe sua moglie Martha. Da Vienna Singer e sua moglie si trasferirono a Barcellona (Spagna), dove fu nominato professore associato all'Università Autonoma. La persecuzione delle autorità spagnole a nome del governo tedesco costrinse Singer a lasciare la Spagna per Parigi (Francia) nel 1934 dove ottenne una borsa di studio al Museo di Storia naturale. Dopo qualche anno si trasferì a Leningrado, dove fu il maggior esperto scientifico presso il giardino botanico dell'Accademia delle Scienze dell'URSS. Durante la sua permanenza all'accademia, Singer effettuò parecchie spedizioni scientifiche in Siberia, sulle montagne di Altai e Karelia. Nel 1941, emigrò negli Stati Uniti dove gli fu offerta un impiego ad Harvard, al Farlow Herbarium, prima come collaboratore scientifico, poi come aiuto curatore, e successivamente come sostituto curatore dopo la morte del Dott. David Linder. Durante i sette anni al Farlow Herbarium, Singer insegnò anche alla Stazione biologica di Mountain Lake dell'Università della Virginia. Nel 1948, lasciò Harvard per diventare professore all'Universidad Nacional de Tucuman in Argentina e successivamente, nel 1961, diventò professore all'Universidad de Buenos Aires. Dal 1968 al 1977 lavorò al “Field museum OF Natural History” dell'Università dell'Illinois a Chicago. Morì a Chicago nel 1994. (it)
