Overview

Tim McCann, The Heron-Allen Society

Having trained as a solicitor, Edward Heron-Allen (1861-1943) went on to write a definitive work on violin-making, lecture in America on palmistry, and publish science fiction and translations of Persian poetry. His work on the foraminifera (microscopic marine organisms) of the Sussex coast led to his election as a Fellow of the Royal Society.
