The original resource provided brief biographical information for the members of staff who served in the organisation during the first hundred years of its existence. This Earthwise version starts with the original content and will extend this for Directors and other key staff.

This resource provides brief biographical information for the members of staff who served in the organisation during the first hundred years of its existence.
  
 
To mark the centenary of the formation of the Geological Survey, Sir John Flett, Director of the Survey in 1935, wrote '[[First hundred years of the Geological Survey of Great Britain|The First Hundred Years of the Geological Survey]]'. Published by HMSO in 1937, this work became one of the key texts for anyone carrying out research into the development of the Survey. One section, Appendix 2, provides an invaluable reference list of those who served on the staff of the Survey between 1835 and 1935. The Prefatory Note in Flett's work acknowledges the contribution of Miss E M Guppy in the compilation of the staff list.

All names listed in [[Staff list of the Geological Survey and Museum, 1835–1935|Appendix II of Sir John Flett's history]]. This includes all staff who were in the Survey before 1900. After 1900 it includes only the scientific staff and not the technical assistants, general assistants, draughtsmen, warders, cleaners, messengers etc.

Information for each member of staff, derived from the extended notes compiled by Miss Guppy with additional amendments and updated information, e.g. obituaries, biographies, photographs and sample signatures. This updating will continue. Additionally, more recent staff are now being included where appropriate in this Earthwise version.
