Biographical / Historical

Leonard Horner (1785-1864) wrote to Sir Archibald Geikie concerning information on Edward Forbes (1815-1854). Geikie's publications and other matters relating to aspects of geological research and to more general professional and social issues also feature. Letters from Horner's daughters, Joanna Baillie Horner (born 1823) and Mrs Katharine Murray Lyell (1817-1915), concern Geikie's tributes after Horner's death in 1864.
