John Wesley Judd C.B., LL.D., F.R.S., F.G.S.
|1840||Born February 18th at Portsmouth. School at Portsmouth, then Camberwell.|
|1858||Entered training college at Westminster.|
|1859||Obtained 1st class certificates from newly formed Department of Science and Art for teaching of geology and mineralogy, but failed to obtain employment as a teacher of science and undertook elementary teaching at Horncastle, Lincolnshire. Gave up spare time and holidays to scientific (especially geology) studies.|
|1863||Entered Royal School of Mines. Won Royal Exhibition in 3rd year, but no facilities for research at Jermyn Street so became analytical chemist in iron and steel works at Sheffield.|
|1864||Introduced to microscopic study of rocks by Sorby (at Sheffield).|
|Injured in railway accident and work at Sheffield given up for geology in Lincolnshire. Correlated strata at base of Lincolnshire Wolds with Neocomian of the Continent, and zones of Speeton Clay in Yorkshire with Lincolnshire facies. Revised Lower Oolites of Lincolnshire extending to Yorkshire and Midland counties, demonstrated their Inferior Oolite age (hitherto supposed to be Great Oolite).|
|1867||Joined the Survey. Worked for 4 years in Rutland and adjoining counties. Memoir: “Rutland” (1875).|
|1871||Resigned from Survey.|
|Joined Education Department as Inspector of Returns in London area.|
|After a year, resumed independent work in the field.|
|Studied Secondary rocks of Scotland, worked out true succession and correlation of Trias to Upper Oolite.|
|On west coast attention directed to igneous rocks. As a result of studies, stated existence of 5 great Tertiary volcanoes, chiefly plutonic complexes representing cores and order of succession acid to basic.|
|Results published in Quarterly Journal Geological Society (1874) attracted notice of Lyell, Darwin and Scrope.|
|Invited to Forfarshire by Lyell, helped to revise “Elements of Geology”.|
|Through Scrope visited volcanic districts of Italy, Hungary and Bohemia (series of papers in Geological Magazine).|
|Proposed terms “intermediate” and “ultrabasic” rocks, also “petrographical provinces”.|
|1876||Chosen to succeed Ramsay as Professor of Geology in Royal School of Mines. School moved south to Kensington.|
|Secretary of Geological Society.|
|1882||Royal College of Science created, with assistance of Huxley, Judd developed comprehensive system of teaching in geology.|
|1886-1887||President of Geological Society.|
|1887||President of Geology Section, British Association, Aberdeen.|
|Hon. LL.D. from Aberdeen University.|
|Results of petrographical work on igneous rocks of Western Isles published in Quarterly Journal Geological Society.|
|Papers also in geology of London and Hampshire basins.|
|1895-1896||Made Dean of Royal College of Science on death of Huxley.|
|1913||Nominated Emeritus Professor of Imperial College.|
|1916||Died March 3rd at Kew.|
