Thomas Bell (1792-1880), British zoologist. Bell inherited a keen interest in natural history from his mother, and carried this through while training as a dental surgeon in London. His amateur research led to becoming professor of zoology at King's College, London, at the same time lecturing on anatomy at Guy's Hospital. His work on crustacea was world-renowned, and he described many of the reptile specimens brought back by Darwin. As president of the Linnean Society, he chaired the meeting at which Darwin and Russell's papers on evolution were read. Photographed circa 1854 by the Maull and Polyblank photographic studio.
