1849 John Stevens Henslow, Darwins tutor

1849 John Stevens Henslow (6 February 1796-16 May 1861), crop of lithographic portrait from life by Thomas Herbert Maguire as part of the Friends of the Ipswich Museum scientific portrait series, commisioned by George Ransome. Henslow was vice-president of the museum and a bound portfolio copy of the portraits was presented by him to H.R.H. Prince Albert when he inspected the museum in 1851. Henslow, a popular Professor of Botany at Cambridge University, became tutor to Charles Darwin during his studies in Cambridge. Darwin was very fond of him, and became known as "the man who follows Henslow". When Henslow and colleague Leonard Jenyns were offered a place on the Beagle Voyage, both decided it would suit a man with less commitments and suggested Darwin. Henslow helped Darwin in the UK throughout the voyage. Henslow retired most academic duties when he became Rector of Hitchin in 1837
