Between 1849 and 1902, Queen's College had three professors of natural history - George Dickie (1812-1877), Charles Wyville Thomson (1830-1882) and Robert Oliver Cunningham (1841-1918). All were Scottish born and trained in medicine at Edinburgh. Alone they carried out the teaching of botany, zoology and geology and laid the foundation of the museum collections. They published widely in their specialist fields and two of them became Fellows of the Royal Society. This is an account of their lives and work and includes their contribution to Irish natural history.
