Mai 1977 in Überlingen) war ein deutscher römisch-katholischer Geistlicher und Entomologe. Er war ein weit über Deutschland hinaus geachteter Koleopterologe. Adolf Horion kam am 12. Juli 1888 als zweites von sieben Kindern des Rentmeisters Jakob Horion und seiner Ehefrau Maria Cäcilia, geb. Pesch in Hochneukirch Kreis Grevenbroich zur Welt. Dort besuchte er auch die Volksschule, später die Gymnasien in Mönchengladbach und Rheydt. Nach eigenen Aussagen wurde sein Interesse an der Natur nicht von der Schule geweckt oder gefördert, sondern war angeboren. Seine Mutter war stets naturverbunden. Sein Hauptinteresse lag damals jedoch nicht bei der Entomologie, sondern der Botanik. Schon früh führte er ein Herbarium, sammelte aber alles, was sein Interesse erweckte. Er studierte 1907-1910 katholische Theologie in Köln und Freiburg i. Br., wo er Mitglied der katholischen Studentenverbindung K.D.St.V. Hercynia im CV wurde, nach anderen Quellen auch in Bonn.

Nick Lars Heidfeld (born May 10, 1977 in Mönchengladbach, West Germany) is a German racing driver, who is currently the test and reserve driver for the Mercedes GP Formula One team. He previously raced in Formula One from 2000 to 2009. Despite scoring regular podium finishes in 2007 and 2008, Heidfeld is yet to win a race during his ten seasons in Formula One. This means that amongst the current drivers, he has had the most GP starts without standing at the top spot on the podium. Heidfeld has now started over 150 races, so if he were to eventually win a race he would break the record for most starts before a maiden victory. This is currently held by Mark Webber, who claimed his first victory on his 131st attempt.
