Darcy Wentworth Thompson joined University College, Dundee in early 1885. He became a Professor at the grand old age of 23, yet, despite him being quite brilliant, the external and internal interviewers didn't choose him for the job. This talk will explain why he was given the Chair of Biology and will reveal how much University College and Thompson needed each other for their mutual development. It will also show the contribution he made to his adopted town of Dundee, both before and after he went to live and work in St Andrews. Join Eddie Small (University of Dundee) for this fascinating talk as we commemorate 70 years since the death of D'Arcy Thompson (21 June 1948)
