(1857-1930) Born in Dundee, Scotland and educated in Northern Ireland, Augustine Henry joined the Chinese Imperial Maritime Custom Service at the age of 24. For almost 20 years, in his spare time, partly spent in central China almost 1000 miles inland, Henry collected and dried botanical specimens that he forwarded to the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. One rough estimate places of the number of species he collected while in China at 5000. Henry grew tired of working in China and returned to Europe, where he studied forestry, eventually becoming the first professor of forestry at the Royal College of Science in Dublin.
