Werner Ernst Martin Janensch
Janensch was a German paleontologist and geologist whose most famous contributions stemmed from the expedition he led with Edwin Hennig to the Tendaguru Beds in what is now Tanzania.

They employed African locals on a pittance, and inbetween bouts of drought, monsoon, maleria and lion attack managed to unearth 250 tons of Jurassic period fossils, then had to crate them up and carry them 100 miles on foot to the nearest coast for collection.

A native of Herzberg (Elster), Werner Janensh was curator of the Natural History Museum of Berlin. He died in Berlin in 1969 at the ripe old age of ninety one.
