Samuel Garman (1843-1927) was a pupil of Louis Agassiz and a friend of Edward Drinker Cope. In 1872 he accompanied Cope on a fossil hunting trip to Wyoming and in 1873 he became assistant director of herpetology and ichthyology at Harvard's Museum of Comparative Zoology. He was primarily a taxonomist, specialising in fish and reptiles, and is best known for his work on sharks.
