c. 1811 - post 1881


Henry 
Crouch
, Clerk to a wire rope manufacturer (1851). Manager of galvanised iron works (1861). Tank maker empl 9 men and 5 boys (1871). Retired iron manufacturer (1881). Does this refer to him? The well-known London microscope maker, Henry Crouch spent the summer of 1876 in Philadelphia, exhibiting his stands at the Centennial exhibition and visiting with the American makers. He spent some time with Zentmayer and mentioned him most favorably in an article in the American Naturalist in 1877. He especially praised Zentmayer's new portable microscope, apparently referring to the rare box-mounted folding microscope (see SMMA #31). Of American stands, he judged Zentmayer's to have no superiors anywhere. TH Huxley in his letters wrote: 26 Abbey Place, July 7, 1871. My dear Dohrn, I have received your packet, and I will take care that your Report is duly presented to the Association. But the "Happy Family" in general, and myself in particular, are very sorry you cannot come to Scotland. We had begun to count upon it, and the children are immeasurably disgusted with the Insects which will not lay their eggs at the right time. You have become acclimatised to my bad behaviour in the matter of correspondence, so I shall not apologise for being in arrear. I have been frightfully hard-worked with two Royal Commissions and the School Board all sitting at once, but I am none the worse, and things are getting into shape--which is a satisfaction for one's trouble. I look forward hopefully towards getting back to my ordinary work next year. Your penultimate letter was very interesting to me, but the glimpses into your new views which it affords are very tantalising--and I want more. What you say about the development of the Amnion in your last letter still more nearly brought "Donner und Blitz!" to my lips--and I shall look out anxiously for your new facts. Lankester tells me you have been giving lectures on your views. I wish I had been there to hear. He is helping me as Demonstrator in a course of instruction in Biology which I am giving to Schoolmasters--with the view of converting them into scientific missionaries to convert the Christian Heathen of these islands to the true faith. I am afraid that the English microscope turned out to be by no means worth the money and trouble you bestowed upon it. But the glory of such an optical Sadowa should count for something! I wish that you would get your Jena man to supply me with one of his best objectives if the price is not ruinous--I should like to compare it with my 1/12 inch of Ross. [In this connection it may be noted that he himself invented a combination microscope for laboratory use, still made by Crouch the optician. (See "Journal of Queckett Micr. Club" volume 5 page 144.)] Other possible children: GRO ref.
