#6728 Kirby. Percival R. SIR ANDREW SMITH, M.D., K.C.B. His Life, Letters And Works. Joining the army medical department he was ordered to the Cape in 1821. He spent 15 years in South Africa where he found much scope for his talents as a naturalist. As a result of his investigations and publications on the subject, he has been acknowledged as the father of South African zoology. His military duties had, practically from his arrival, taken him into areas inhabited by the aborigines, and this aroused his interest in both anthropolgy and exploration. He accordingly made copious notes on the manners and customs of the bantu tribes with who he came into contact. Grahamstown was his headquarters, on and off, for several years until 1825.
