Using the documents held in the Sedgwick Museum Archive, new insights into the famous petrologist Alfred Harker (1859 – 1939) have been made. His meticulously kept otebooks chart his development as a geologist from undergraduate days at St. John’s College, his work as a Demonstrator to the Woodwardian Professor Thomas McKenny-Hughes, his part-time mapping work on Skye for the Geological Survey of Scotland and through to his retirement and pleasure cruises around the West coast of Scotland in the 1920’s and 30’s.

This work is funded by the ‘Friends of the Sedgwick Museum’ and is part of a much larger project to document and make accessible these geological archive materials.
