Joseph Beete Jukes, MA, FSA.

A paper read before the Royal Geological Society of Ireland, November 13, 1867,
Dublin University Press, Printed by M H Gill (1867). illus., pp. 43

Prepared by Michael Steer

The author was born near Birmingham on October 10th 1811 and graduated from Cambridge in 1836 (BA) and 1841 (MA). On leaving, Jukes undertook geological tours of England, paying his expenses by delivering courses of geological lectures. In 1839, he was appointed geological surveyor to the colony of Newfoundland where he embarked on a one-man reconnaissance survey. In December 1841, he was appointed naturalist to HMS Fly, with the opportunity to pursue his science in locations such as Madeira, Cape Colony, New Guinea, Australia and the Great Barrier Reef. From about 1850 he became Director of the Geological Survey of Ireland based in Dublin and from 1854, Professor of Geology in the Government School of Science Applied to Mining and the Arts.
