Professor John Milne

Professor John Milne FRS (1850-1913) was the founder of the science of seismology, the study of earthquakes. The first half of his professional life was spent in Japan, and the second half on the Isle of Wight where he established the world’s first seismographic station. The Museum collections contain many photographs taken by him on the island, and many taken in Japan (mostly lantern slides).
