Administrative / Biographical history

In 1888, the French naturalist Philippe François (1859-1908) visited Victoria and New South Wales enroute to New Caledonia and the New Hebrides where he was to carry out research into coral reefs in the region. From these expeditions François brought back to France important collections of natural history specimens and ethnographic artefacts.
