1869 - 1922
Józef Grzybowski (1869-1922) was a Polish geologist, paleontologist and foraminiferologist. He was a pioneer in the use fossil foraminifera assemblages for stratigraphical applications. His technique was rediscovered in the United States over 20 years later. He was educated at Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland. In 1912 Grzybowski became the first director of the Palaeontological Laboratory (now the Department of Paleozoology at that university. His microfossil collection housed at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow is perhaps the single most important reference collection for the taxonomy of "flysch-type" deep-water agglutinated foraminifera. The Grzybowski Foundation, named for Jozef Grzybowski, promotes education and research in the field of Micropalaeontology.
