AdminHistoryAlexander Goodman More (1830-1895) was born in London on 5 September 1830. He was educated at Rugby School and matriculated at Trinity College, Cambridge University. He worked as an Assistant at the Natural History Museum, Dublin from 1867, and a Curator between 1881-1887.

He contributed in 1860 a section entitled, "Outlines of Natural History of the Isle of Wight", to Rev. Edmund Venables' 'Guide to the Isle of Wight'. Working on W.A. Bromfield's Flora Vectensis' he wrote a 'Supplement to the Flora Vectensis', London 1871. More's herbarium and portrait are at the National Museum, Dublin, and some of his letters are at Kew.
