Frederick Wollaston Hutton (1836-1905) was one of the most versatile and productive natural scientists in late 19th century New Zealand, publishing over 200 papers on geological and biological topics. He described a large number of living and fossil animals, and many of his names are still in use today. Hutton was an active letter writer, and his letters provide an interesting insight into debates and changing ideas within the small New Zealand scientific community. These letters track the changing relationships between Hutton and the other two leading scientists in the colony – James Hector (1834-1907) and Julius Haast (1822-87).
