Dian Fossey (Jan. 16 1932 – 1985) was an American zoologist who undertook a daily study of gorilla groups over a period of 18 years in the forests of Rwanda. Her book 'Gorillas in the Mist' combines her scientific study of the mountain gorilla with her own personal story.

Fossey was murdered in 1985; the case remains open.
