General Notes: Dr Morris TAYLOR B.D.S, D.D.S. Otago.
A Wanganui man who was the first scientist to call the Piltdown Man a fraud.

Richard Morris Stovin TAYLOR, who was born in Wanganui and educated at Collegiate School, was known affectionately as "Doc" by hundreds of dental nurses, colleagues and children.

Dr Taylor began his career with the school dental service. During this period, from 1930-1948, he became the Health Dept's principal dental officer as well as the "colonial upstart" who challenged the British scientific community over the Piltdown Man. This was a supposedly ancient skull found in a gravel pit on Piltdown Common, Sussex, England, in 1912. It was claimed to be the missing link between man and ape.

In 1937, Dr Taylor told a group of scientists in Auckland that the dental arrangement of the skull could never have existed. He declared the Piltdown Man a hoax. It was to be 16 years before British scientists with the help of carbon dating echoed his hitherto ignored finding.

In 1935 he married Irene Bel RHODES (Rene), and they had 2 children, Diana & Michael (adopted).
Lived at 84 Kolmar Rd, Papatoetoe, Auck.

Richard Morris Stovin TAYLOR Noted in NZ Gazette 1921, Public Servant of Wanganui - Public Service Examination p.2088. - Auckland Archives.

Dr Taylor's close friend of 44 years, Newton Wickham, the Dental Association's welfare officer, said there had been a long campaign to have Dr Taylor knighted.

After running a dental practice at Papatoetoe, Auckland, for 16 years, Dr Taylor became an honorary research associate at Auckland University's zoology dept, and from 1979 was a visiting researcher at the school of medicine anatomy dept at the University. In 1980 he was awarded a doctorate in science at Auckland University. 8 years later he became the first dentist to be awarded the Royal Society's Marsden Medal.

Loved cats; had a lovely sense of humour, and had an early type phonograph with big speaker.

Wrote 'Look & See Through' which was published not long before his death.
Sylvia Robertson (niece) did the typing up of the manuscript.

Died in 1992 in Auckland.
