Bayern, F. S.

An Austrian immigrant, Bayern traveled first to Odessa as a naturalist who developed an interest in archeology. Viceroy of the Caucasus M. S. Vorontsov dispatched him there in 1849, where he pioneered in developing scientific interests in the Caucasus. He contributed to local museums as well, e.g., the Piatigorsk Museum and the Ekaterinodar Museum.
