Richard Owen, English zoologist, 1884. Artist: Edward Linley Sambourne Featured Print

Richard Owen, English zoologist, 1884. Artist: Edward Linley Sambourne

Richard Owen, English zoologist, 1884. After qualifying and practising as a surgeon, Owen (1804-1892) made major contributions in the fields of anatomy and paleontology. He was responsible for first coining the word dinosaur (terrible lizard) in 1841 for the fossilized reptiles that had been discovered. Owen was opposed to Darwin's theories, believing that natural selection was insufficient to explain evolution. The figure on the left with a letter in his mouth is TH Huxley (1825-1895), the English biologist who championed Darwin. Cartoon from Edward Linley Sambourne's Fancy Portrait series for Punch, (London, 5 January 1884)
