Island Pioneer: Tonė Horikawa

We are delighted to start working with a number of founding partners to add content on to The Earth Museum. Discover more at our Partner Collections page on this website.

Our story this week is inspired by a couple of these projects working with the collections of John Milne now in museum archives on the Isle of Wight. Its starting point has been the seismograph co-designed by Milne from the Melbourne Observatory in Australia, and it reflects on the extraordinary life story of Tonė Horikawa, his wife and research companion.
