Peter Bacon (1938-2003) — Consummate Naturalist

Christopher K. Starr, Ian Lambie


The Caribbean natural-history community lost one of its stalwarts in February 2003 with the passing of Peter R. Bacon at the age of 64. At the time of his death, he was Professor of Zoology at the Trinidad campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI). Originally from England, he spent most of his adult life in the Caribbean. His time in Trinidad was divided into two periods, an early one (1963-1980) in which he did his PhD at UWI and then taught there for many years, and a later period (1993-2003) as Professor. In between, he spent 11 years at the Jamaica campus of UWI.
