Dumitru Comanescu was born in Provita de Jos, in Draganeasa, in Prahova County, Romania. Reportedly, he has a memory of the 1918 Great Union. He was an agronomist engineer and one of the most valuable phytopathologists, being the disciple of the founder of the Institute of Agronomic Research, Gheorghe Ionescu Sisesti. Initially he enrolled in the Faculty of Mathematics, having as a teacher one of the greatest mathematicians, Gheorghe Titaica. He would then find his vocation in the world of plant research. He graduated from the university in 1933 and worked for 70 years: in 2003 he was the last phytopathological expert.
