Of Bloom in Cannon Lane, Edinburgh (1906), later also having a cottage by the bridge at Carlops. ----------------- THE LINNEAN 2007 VOLUME 23(1) Malcolm Laurie was Professor of Zoology at St Mungo's College, Glasgow (college established in 1889 in the wake of the University of Glasgow's move from the city centre to its present situation atop Gilmorehill). He was interested mostly in Arachnida including fossil eurypterids (Laurie, 1899a). He investigated the Order Pedipalpi as it then was (Laurie, 1896a; that taxon is now redundant being split into Amblypygi, Schizomida and Uropygi all at ordinal level) but, in particular, was captivated by the Order Scorpiones (Laurie, 1890, 1891, 1896b,c,d) establishing the subfamily Euscorpiinae Laurie, 1896 within the family Chactidae (Laurie, 1896c). That taxon is now elevated to familial status as the Euscorpiidae Laurie, 1896 within the superfamily Chactoidea (Fet, pers. comm. to PGM). Maybe it was simply that stinging beasts the whip-scorpions excepted exerted a fascination, for he also contributed the section on Coelenterata (= Cnidaria) to the Clyde catalogue of Scott Elliot et al. (1901). Laurie had applied to be considered for the Regius Chair of Natural History in the University of Aberdeen in 1899 (a copy of his application and testimonials is housed in the National Library of Scotland; Laurie, 1899b). He was unsuccessful in that ambition, losing out to J. Arthur Thomson (1860-1931). --------- ELLIOT, G. F. SCOTT, LAURIE, M. & MURDOCH, J. B. (editors), 1901.
