Biographical / Historical
Correspondence with fellow geologist, Reverend Osmond Fisher (1817-1913), covered a number of professional areas, primarily Fisher's own research; that from Sir William Henry Flower (1831-1899) was more concerned with associations they had an interest in.
David Forbes (1828-1876), brother to Edward Forbes (subject of a biography by Geikie) corresponded on both social and professional matters. Correspondence with Sir Clement Le Neve Foster (1841-1904) centred mostly around Foster's application to be Registrar of the University of London. That with Sir Michael Foster (1836-1907) was particularly concerned with Royal Society matters.
Geikie also corresponded with Sir Douglas Strutt Galton (1822-1899) and with Edmund Johnston Garwood (1864-1949), who had just been appointed to the chair of Geology at University College London in 1901.
