James Edward Corbett  (25 July 1875  – 19 April 1955)
was a British-Indian hunter, conservationist and author. A colonel in the British Indian Army,
he w
as frequently called upon by the government to kill man-eating tigers and leopards in the Garhwal and Kumaon regions on north India.


Corbett became an avid photographer and spoke out for the need to protect India's wildlife.
He played a key role in influencing the government to create a national park for animals in
that region, and the park was later renamed as Jim Corbett National Park in his honour.
