Lawrence Ogilvie (5 July 1898 – 16 April 1980) was a Scottish plant pathologist. In the 1920s in Bermuda, he saved the commercially important lily-bulb export trade to the USA, by identifying a virus and instituting inspection and treatment. He researched and wrote the book The Insects of Bermuda, that scientifically described 395 Bermuda insects. In Britain, from 1930 to 1970, Ogilvie pioneered the study of the diseases of vegetables, and became Europe's leading expert. During the food-critical years 1940-1960, he was the leading expert on the rust diseases of cereal crops.
