1800 Thomas Jefferson Portrait

Thomas Jefferson, polymath, American Founding Father and President (b. 13 April 1743 - d. 4 July 1826). Engraving by W.Holl in "The Gallery of Portraits" 1837 with later colouring, after print by Desnoyers and painting by Peale 1800. His chief contribution to science came in paleontology, describing the American Mastodon and in 1797 the first fossil of the giant ground sloth Megalonyx jeffersonii from West Virginia. Megalonyx means "giant claw" (see Leidy 1855). Cuvier credited the discovery and illustrated it in his 1812 "Ossamens fossiles". Buffon had been dismissive of the American fauna as feeble and Jefferson was happy to counter the claim with fossils such as these. Jefferson also contributed to the sciences as an inventor and archaeologist. He founded the University of Virginia

Trafalgar Square EGP_22657_75

Trafalgar Square, Westminster, London, 22 May 1909.
Dr William James Stewart Lockyer (1868-??1936) silver gelatin glass plate negative. This view, from the balloon Corona at 2, 000ft (610m), was taken by the pioneering balloonist Dr James Lockyer. Like his father, Sir Norman Lockyer, James was an astronomer, but he had always been '??air-minded'??. He made his first balloon ascent in 1907, and served with the Royal Naval Air Service and the Royal Air Force in the First World War. Lockyer was familiar with photographic technology from his astronomical work, and that probably explains the high quality of this image. The Admiralty Arch, built between 1906 and 1911, can be seen under construction (centre right) between Trafalgar Square and The Mall. From the EGPN Collection held by Historic England Archive
