Princeton University Expeditions to Patagonia, 1896-99. Some sixty years after Charles Darwin and Robert Fitzroy’s Beagle expedition to Patagonia, Princeton University conducted three expeditions to the area with the first leaving Brooklyn on February 29th, 1896. Professor William Berryman Scott (1858-1947), head of the Geology and Palaeontology Department and the curator and palaeontologist, John Bell Hatcher (1861-1904) planned and led the expeditions. Ostensibly a palaeontogical expedition, the team also observed and researched the geology, zoology, anthropology and botany of the area.
