Jim Corbett

Edward James ‘Jim’ Corbett (b. 1875) was an Anglo-Indian hunter and tracker-turned-conservationist, author and naturalist. After giving up hunting, Corbett played a key role in protecting India’s wildlife, especially the endangered Bengal tiger, and used his influence in the provincial government to establish a national reserve for these tigers. The reserve was renamed in 1957 as Jim Corbett National Park in his honour.

Corbett was an avid photographer and after his retirement wrote several books recounting his hunts and experiences. Some of his works that have enjoyed much critical and commercial acclaim are Man-Eaters of Kumaon (1944), The Man-Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag (1947), Jungle Lore (1953) and The Temple Tiger and More Man-Eaters of Kumaon (1954).

Jim Corbett died in Kenya in 1955.
