Wikipedia, February 15, 2022 (Georg Foster; Johann George Adam Forster, also known as Georg Forster (27 November 1754 - 10 January 1794) was a German naturalist, ethnologist, travel writer, journalist and revolutionary. At an early age, he accompanied his father, Johann Reinhold Forster, on several scientific expeditions, including James Cook's second voyage to the Pacific. After returning to continental Europe, Forster turned toward academia. He taught natural history at the Collegium Carolinum in the Ottoneum, Kassel (1778-84), and later at the Academy of Vilna (Vilnius University) (1784-87). In 1788, he became head librarian at the University of Mainz. Most of his scientific work during this time consisted of essays on botany and ethnology, but he also prefaced and translated many books about travel and exploration, including a German translation of Cook's diaries. Born in Nassenhuben (now Mokry Dwór, Poland), a small village near Danzig; died in Paris, French Republic)
