Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Charles Hedley (27 February 1862 - 14 September 1926) was a naturalist, active in Australia and winner of the 1925 Clarke Medal. Hedley was born in the vicarage at Masham, Yorkshire, England, the son of the Rev. Canon Thomas Hedley and his wife Mary, n e Bush. On account of delicate health Hedley had only two years at Eastbourne College, but his education was continued by his father, a fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge. He was mainly educated in the south of France; from boyhood he collected shells and was greatly influenced by a French work on molluscan anatomy. In France he met George French Angas who gave him a letter of introduction to Dr. George Bennett of Sydney.
