Naturalist - Discovery 1901-04
Thomas Vere Hodgson born in Birmingham, England started his life in business through necessity rather than design. His desire was to qualify in medicine and natural science, though circumstances did not allow this for many years during which he devoted his spare time to scientific study.
Eventually he was appointed to a minor position in the Plymouth Biological Laboratory from which followed a lectureship and a post as curator of the Plymouth Museum.
At 37 years old when he joined the Discovery expedition Hodgson was one of the oldest members.
