A.S. Packard (1839-1905) was an entomologist, parasitologist and microscopist. From 1878 to 1905, he was a professor of zoology and geology at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, where he undertook studies in microscopic histology and pathology that paralleled and complemented those in the emerging field of bacteriology.

Packard also wrote Lamarck, the Founder of Evolution: His Life and Work (New York, 1901).
