John More Gordon

The Reverend John More Gordon (1849-1922) was the vicar of St. Johns, Redhill, Surrey. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Microscopical Society in 1884, and for over 30 years, was also a member of the Swiss Alpine Club. He became an expert collector of Alpine minerals and built a particularly fine collection of Swiss minerals which he bequeathed to the British Museum in 1922. In 1906 he started building a mineral collection in memory of his grandfather, Harry Gordon. This collection was presented in 1922 to Aberdeen University Museum and was named the "Harry Gordon Collection."
