Summary
  • Portrait of Doctor Thomas Lane Bancroft taken from the family collection. He was well known as a medical naturalist. Thomas was born on the 2 January 1860 and came to Brisbane with his parents and sister in 1864. After graduating from Edinburgh University in 1883 he practised in Ann Street, Brisbane, from 1889 to 1894. Thomas Bancroft served as a quarantine officer for the port of Brisbane, government medical officer in 1908 and medical officer on Palm Island in 1930. He undertook many other investigations ranging from blood parasites of birds to Aboriginal food-plants and hybridization of cotton. Absorbed in natural history he made an indirect contribution to knowledge over a wider field on which he published eighty-four papers. He died on the 12 November, 1933 (Information taken from Australian dictionary of biography, v.7, 1992).
