  • 9 Jan 1891, Sir Frederick M'Coy.
    All Australians will feel proud that Professor—to use the term that has sounded very familiar in the ears of some generations of students—-M'Coy has been singled out for New Year's honours, inasmuch as he is our leading and our oldest man of science, and we are sufficiently civilised to feel that a lifetime spent in the cause of science is a better title to honour than the long purse of a successful business man. As thirty-six years of Professor M'Coy's life have been spent in our service, we count him an "Australian" man of science, and our vanity is proportionately gratified by Her Majesty's action. Sir Frederick M'Coy, however, can in no way be claimed as an Australian, save in kindly interest and sympathy. He is the son of Dr. Simon M'Coy, a fashionable physician of Dublin, who died only about five or six years ago, aged 85 years, and in the course of a somewhat lonely childhood and youth made such good use of his time that he was ready to enter the University long before he was old enough to do so according to the regulations. The young man was intended for his father's profession, and was educated at the University of Dublin and subsequently at that of Cambridge, where in after years he nearly always spent his vacations. Here, again, he was ready long before he was old enough to be admitted, and whilst waiting for his years to increase ho accepted the offer of Sir Richard Griffith to make the palœontological investiga tions required for the Geological Map of Ireland for the Boundary Survey, and published the results of his examinations in two large quarto volumes, illustrated with numerous plates, chiefly from his own drawings, one entitled " Synopsis of the Carboniferous Limestone Fossils of Ireland," and the other " Synopsis of the Silurian Fossils of Ireland," containing many hundreds of new discoveries. The idea of practising medicine was put on one side, for so highly were these works esteemed in the scientific world, that their author was immediately invited by the late Colonel Sir Henry James, R.E., and Sir Henry de la Bèche to join the British Geological Survey then commenced, which invitation Mr. M'Coy accepted, and was soon evident that a bright new scientific star had arisen in the firmament, so that the maps of the districts geologically surveyed by him in the field were scarcely completed before Mr. M'Coy was appointed by Sir Robert Peel to the Chair of Geology and Palaeontology in the now Queen's University of Ireland. Queen's was the first secular, or at least non-sectarian University established in Ireland, and Mr. McCoy being then only 25 or 26 years of age was the first professor appointed, and here he remained until he came to Victoria in 1854. Even as a child Professor McCoy was impressed with the necessity for condensation, the value of conciseness in explana tions and the unnecessary waste of time involved in plodding through pages of verbosity. On his father's death a large portion of his library was sent out to his son, and here Professor McCoy was confronted with many evidences of his youthful propensity for scoring out unnecessary matter from the pages of the text books of the time. As a lad he did much dissection, having gone through the whole course before he entered the University. There was in Dublin at that day an eminent oculist of the name of Jacob—after whom Jacob's membrane is named—who also had a precocious son, afterwards a well-known oculist of Collins-street, Melbourne, but dead many years ago.
    Professor M Coy, besides being first appointed was the first of the four to arrive in 1854. He was allowed at short intervals by the late Professor ..llson, who had been his collegue for some years at ...son's ; by Dr. Hearn, and the Professor of classics .. only lived a fortnight after his arrival. They ..and the University only in process of building, and .. Professor M'Coy had assisted the Hon. H. C. E. ...lders, first vice-chancellor of the University of Melbourne, in drafting the first regulations, wherein ... experience gained at Queen's was exeedingly valuable, lectures commenced in the old Exhibition Building where the Mint now stands. For years Professor M'Coy did the work of four Professors:—1, Geology and Palœontology ; 2, Botany; 3, Chemistry and Mineralogy ; 4, Comparative Anat omy and Zoology, delivering lectures and conducting all the examinations in these subjects.
    Soon after his arrival in Victoria Professor M'Coy began to agitate for the foundation of a National Museum. Although our Professor was backed up by Captain (afterwards Sir) Andrew Clarke, R.E., Surveyor-General, and Judge (afterwards Sir Red mond) Barry, Sir Charles Hotham, the Governor of the day, pooh-poohed the idea. The country, accord ing to him, was in no want of a Museum. At last, after the exercise of much tact and patience on the part of Professor M'Coy, the Governor was brought to consent. "If," said he, "the thing is not a success and the country's money is wasted, Captain Clarke will say, " Oh, I am not a naturalist, I am an engineer," and Judge Barry will say, "I am a lawyer, not a geologist but you, Professor M'Coy, are a man of science and must take the responsibility of recommend ing it." Needless to say that Professor M'Coy was glad to obtain his heart's desire, although he had to pledge his scientific reputation for its utility. The Museum was recommended to Parliament, the neces sary sum placed on the estimates, and the erection of the present building—only half the original plan—at the rear of the University was proceeded with, Hither Professor M'Coy transferred all the treasures, the stuffed birds and animals, the stones and fossils, which he had meanwhile been accumulat ing in a room at the University, and it is now his greatest desire that he may see the Museum finished in a year or two, so that he may have space to display his system of classification to advantage. For it is not generally known that the classification adopted in our treasure house is peculiar to Professor McCoy. The (scientifically) ignorant mul titude admire its effects ignorantly ; men of science from other countries admire with knowledge but find it difficult to get the system adopted by the directors of their own museums, though the attempt is now being made in the British Museum. Elsewhere than in Victoria the classification adopted is to put all the species of one genus together, so that, as one admirer said, "one has scores of cases of birds differing by scarcely a feather, avenues of skeletons, a mile of rats and mice." This depressing monotony does not exist in the Victorian Museum. For one thing, as is pretty well-known, Professor McCoy is no evolutionist; rejects utterly the " splendid assumption" of his old friend, Charles Darwin, and has arranged the museum accord ing to the six great regional areas of life :—(1) Aus tralia, (2) South Africa, (3) South America, (1) North America, (5) Northern Africa, Europe and Northern Asia, (6) India and the Islands. In each of these divisions is grouped all that appertains thereto ; from its living mammalia the scale descends to its meanest plant and below the earth's crust to the fossils of a previous age. In this way only it is Professor McCoy's opinion, can the student advantageously compare the parallel forms of life : —e.g. the emu of Australia with the ostrich of South Africa, the rhea of South America or the cassowary of the Indian Islands.
    We have not by any means mentioned all Professor McCoy's books. During his vacations at Queen's he undertook—in conjunction with the Rev. Professor Sedgwick—a large work on " British Palœozoic Rocks and Fossils," based on the materials in the Woodwardian collections at Cambridge. Professor McCoy's portion of this work was published as a thick quarto volume just before his appointment by Sir J. Herschel to the first Professorship of Natural Science in the University of Melbourne. Since coming to Australia scores of papers and memoirs have issued from his pen, embalming his original discoveries, and are to be found in the "Annals of Natural History," and in the proceedings of various learned societies. His magnum opus on the fauna of Australia, illustrated with beautiful plates, is a monument of erudition and research, and it is quite impossible to estimate what zoology in Australia owes to Professor M'Coy, who, if he had elected to remain in Europe, would long ere this have received world-wide recogni tion as an original discoverer and thinker.
    After a long life-time spent in hard work, Professor M'Coy is still hale and hearty. As with most writers, all his life he has followed the habit of writing late, usually till 2 a.m., then, after a spoil with a pair of heavy dumb-bells, he sleeps a sound, refreshing sleep, in which there is no room for dreams, and in about 5½ hours awakes fresh and ready for another useful and industrious day in the service of science. In recognition of Professor M'Coy's exceptional attain ments, he was elected one of the few honorary members of the Cambridge Philosophical Society, and he is, of course, honorary member of a great many scientific bodies in differeut parts of the world, and by King Victor Emanuel he was created a knight or chevalier of the Royal order of the Crown of Italy, and now the K.C.M.G. of Her Majesty worthily concludes the list, for the present.
    In this matter of honours Professor M'Coy has been happier than another Melbourne man (a surgeon), who was, it is said recommended for Knighthood not so very long ago, but a jealous physician just then on a visit to England, spoiled the affair. But then Professor M'Coy is not known to have any enemies.
    Professor M'Coy has a family of two children, a son and a daughter. Mrs. M'Coy, oldest daughter of Mr. Thomas Harrison solicitor, of Dublin, died about five years ago.7
  • 5 Oct 1891, McCOY.—On the 3rd inst., Emily Mary McCoy, beloved daughter of Sir Frederick McCoy, from influenza and pneumonia, aged 46.8,9
  • 10 May 1899, Sir Frederick M'Coy is still in a critical condition, and his state is a subject of much anxiety to his medical attendants, Dr. Maudsley and Mr. Rudall. It is expressly desired by the medical gentlemen that Sir Frederick M'Coy's friends will abstain from endeavouring to see him, as absolute quiet is at present indispensable.10
