Dr. Kurt Harz
* 1915 - † 1996

Dr. Kurt Harz founded the ARTICULATA in January 1975 as "Journal for biology, systematics and new descriptions of arthropods in a broad sense". The journal was published by him privately until volume 3 (last issue December 1988), and distributed by exchange including delivery to major libraries. Already at those times, the main focus of the journal were articles on the Orthoptera of Europe. At initiative of Dr. Harz the German Society for Orthopterology was founded in November 1988. From this starting point, publishing of the ARTICULATA was handed over to the society.

Information on the publications of Dr. Kurz Harz and the taxa described by him are summarised in the following articles that can be downloaded as pdf files; there is also an obituary (all from ARTICULATA, in German).
