C. Lloyd Morgan (1852-1936), British ethologist and psychologist. Morgan studied at the Royal School of Mines, and by 1884 was teaching at University College, Bristol, as professor of geology and zoology. He later, in 1891, became Principal of the college. By 1901, his interests in mental evolution had led to him becoming the college's professor of psychology and education. He helped the college secure full university status in 1909 as the University of Bristol. He is best remembered for his theory of emergent evolution, as well as his contribution to the interpretation of animal psychology experiments (Morgan's Canon). His works include 'Animal Behaviour' (1900), 'Emergent Evolution' (1923) and 'Mind at the Crossways' (1929). He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1899.
