1887

Abstract

The evidence indicates that Pirie 1927 and Pirie 1940 were named in honor of Lord Joseph Lister, the father of antiseptic surgery, and not Sir Spencer Lister, as some have claimed. Other uses of as a generic name recognized the contributions of Lord Lister's father and younger brother. The Listers honored by other uses of the names and were not of Lord Lister's immediate family. The specific epithet used in the names of three species of bacteria, also honors Lord Lister.
