Arthur Milnes Marshall Papers

Date range: 1884-1893.

A small collection of papers of Arthur Milnes Marshall (1852-1893), naturalist, Professor of Zoology at Owens College (which later became the University of Manchester), 1879-1893, Secretary and subsequently Chairman of the Board of Studies of the Victoria University.

He published a number of important papers on the origin and development of nervous systems in higher animals, before his death in a climbing accident.

There is material relating to the academic disciplines of zoology and botany: Marshall is acknowledged as a pioneer in the teaching of both subjects.

There are also papers concerning the foundation and early years of the Athletic Union, in which Marshall was closely involved.
