Geddes at UCL "There was something more in town planning than met the eye!"

Patrick Geddes was at UCL from 1877 to 1878 although as a student of physiology, not as the 'father of British Town Planning' as he was to become. We explore his time here and the links he had both back to Charles Darwin and forward to Patrick Abercrombie. This is part of our wider quest to assess the impact of Geddes on evolutionary theory in the study of cities and planning of which we plan a more substantial paper which we will, in due course, post on this web site.
