Hugh Gleghorn
Forrester and Scottish Laird

Hugh Cleghorn was a leading Forest Conservator in mid-19th century India. Dr Henry Noltie tells of his work piecing together Cleghorn's life, reconnecting collections at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh: herbarium specimens, books, and botanical drawings commissioned by Cleghorn in India. What he finds is an unsung pioneer, a collector, and a major benefactor to the RBGE.
