Dr Felix Whitham 1919-2009

Felix Whitham was a member of the Hull Geological Society for 49 years and its Treasurer for 37 years. As an amateur palaeontologist he amassed an important collection of fossils from East Yorkshire which he donated to the British Geological Survey. He published many articles about local geology, especially the Chalk. He left his scientific archive to the Society and some unpublished work is now available on this website for the first time.
