British Museum report. Annotated page of minutes from the parliamentary enquiry on the British Museum (1835-1836). The annotations are by the British zoologist John Edward Gray (1800-1875), Keeper of Zoology at the British Museum from 1840 to 1874. The evidence here is from the British palaeontologist Richard Owen (1804-1892), who at the time was Hunterian Professor at the Royal College of Surgeons, and would later be superintendent of the natural history department of the British Museum. This department became a separate entity (the Natural History Museum) in 1881, with Owen as its first director.
