Alfred Cort Haddon (1855-1940) inherited from his mother a love of natural history, and in 1878 he obtained a first class in the natural science tripos from Cambridge University. In 1880 he was appointed Professor of Zoology at the Royal College of Sciences, and Assistant Naturalist to the Science and Art Museum in Dublin. It was in Ireland he developed an interest in ethnology. In 1888-1889 he made his first visit to the Torres Straits to study marine biology, but also to record the life of the people before contact with Europeans extinguished native customs. On his return he also accepted a part-time lectureship at Cambridge University in physical anthropology. In 1898-1899 he led the Cambridge Anthropological Expedition to the Torres Straits. In 1900 he was appointed University lecturer in ethnology in Cambridge, and in 1901 was elected to a fellowship at Christ's College. He attended the British Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Australia in 1914, and re-visited the Torres Straits in the company of his daughter, Kathleen. On his return to England he continued to work at his Torres Straits Reports and organised his South Seas collections at the Cambridge University Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. The Report of the Cambridge Anthropology Expedition to Torres Straits were published between 1901-1912, and the final volume (no. 1) appeared in 1935. He co-wrote with James Hornell Canoes of Oceania (1936-1938), and his study of cultural diffusion Smoking and Tobacco Pipes in New Guinea was published posthumously in 1946.
