Francis Erasmus Wilson (1888-1960) was Secretary of the RAOU from 1911 to
1913 and Honorary Entomologist to the National Museum of Victoria.  He
contributed a fair amount of stuff to The Emu, mainly on cuckoos and
Helmeted Honeyeaters, between 1910 and 1950.  An obituary was published in
the Victorian Naturalist in 1961.  The next time you visit Melbourne you can
check it out in our library.
