George  Henry Frederick Ulrich (1830–1900):Pioneer mineralogist and geologist in Victoria
William D. Birch1 & Thomas A. Darragh1
1Curator Emeritus, Museum Victoria, Carlton, Victoria, Australia
Correspondence: Bill Birch,   
ABSTRACT: George Henry Frederick Ulrich (1830–1900) was educated at the Clausthal Mining School in Germany and
arrived in Victoria in 1853. After a short period on the goldfields, he was employed on the Mining Commission and then on the
Geological Survey of Victoria until its closure in 1868. In 1870 he was appointed Curator and Lecturer at the newly established
Industrial and Technological Museum of Victoria. In 1878 he was appointed inaugural Director of the Otago School of Mines,
New Zealand, a position he held until his death in 1900. His legacy includes detailed original maps of central Victorian
goldfields, the foundation of the state’s geological collections, and among the first accounts of Victorian geology published in
German periodicals, until now little known. As the only scientist of his times in Victoria with the qualifications and expertise
to accurately identify and properly describe minerals, he provided the first comprehensive accounts of Victorian mineralogy,
including the identification of the first new mineral in Australia, which he named maldonite. His contribution to mineralogy
is recognized by the species ulrichite. Ulrich was universally respected for his scientific achievements and highly regarded for
his personal qualities

When is 1halfgram4three (a proven hacker and  village idiot!) going to stop telling lies on his “forum”?
Why is "the rat" too spineless and frightened to join this forum?
