George Stewardson Brady (1832–1921) and his collections at the Hancock Museum, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

Peter S. Davis and David J. Horne

Abstract. A synopsis of the life and work of G. S. Brady is given. The curation and computer-cataloguing of the Brady slide collections is described and the subsequent benefits to researchers outlined. Much work remains to be carried out on the collection – an attempt to demonstrate the type of research needed focuses on the species of Ostracoda described by Brady in two of his early papers.
