In the 1950's, Dr. Fred Urquhart of the University of Toronto/Royal Ontario
Museum garnered a considerable amount of publicity and notoriety for eating
monarch butterflies in an attempt to disprove the notion that monarchs are
"distasteful" .

Fred will be 89 years old in December. Did eating monarchs have something to do
with this!
