Dr. Lenczy was a native of Hungary
who also lived and practiced medicine in the Cameroons and New
York. He retired to Green Valley, Arizona where he continued
his extensive amateur interest in scarabs. His home was fabulously
decorated with native artifacts and preserved animals that he
encountered while living in equatorial Africa, and he was particularly
proud of his small swimming pool in his back yard. He had an
extensive correspondence and collection of well-curated beetles
(ca 175,000 specimens) that went to the the Smithsonian Institution
after his death.
