Gilbert White, The Outdoor Naturalist Online Talk
'Gilbert White, the Outdoor Naturalist' Online talk, Tuesday 5th October, 7pm
The Revd Gilbert White (1720-1793) was a naturalist, ecologist and ornithologist, whose careful study of creation inspired future scientists such as Charles Darwin.
White changed the way the world looked at nature through his book The Natural History of Selborne, published in 1789 and never out of print since. Considered by many to be the father of ecology,
White was once a household name as familiar as David Attenborough is today. In this talk Collections Manager at Gilbert White’s House, Kimberley James, will take you through Gilbert’s life from a lively outdoorsy child, to his worldwide fame and lasting legacy.
Kimberley James is a graduate of the University of Winchester, she completed her Maters in Eighteenth Century Studies at The University of Southampton. She has worked at Gilbert White's House & Gardens since 2014.
