David Drummond - A Book of Old Rat Catchers
David Drummond is a zoologist who was educated at University College, London and Pennsylvania State University.

Since retiring in 1988 as the Chief Scientific Officer responsible for the UK Ministry of Agriculture's Central Science Laboratories involved in research into Plant Pests and Diseases, he has occupied himself with gardening, overseas travel and writing books and articles on the history of rodent control particularly in relation to the successful development of better mouse traps.
