James Ogilby researched fishes and birds in Ireland and the USA before coming to Australia and joining the Australian Museum in 1885. A prolific scientist, he published 21 papers in his first two years at the Museum and a total of 181 papers in a 40-year career, describing 154 new species of fishes (by himself and in collaboration) and registering over 5000 lots of fishes with the Museum collection. Departing the Museum under a cloud in 1901, Ogilby moved to the Queensland Museum and further work with the Amateur Fishermen's Association of Queensland. Join historian and author Joy Ware as she shares her research into the life and times of her great-great uncle, James Ogilby.

Following Joy’s talk, we’ll have the chance to examine some of Ogilby’s type specimens from the Museum collection and view his notes and diaries from the archives. Note that this special evening will conclude at 8.30 pm.
