Ronald Jack Scarlett1

M, b. 22 March 1911, d. 9 July 2002

  • He was the son of Walter Andrew Scarlett and Lilian Elsie Cresswell.1
  • Ronald Jack Scarlett died on 9 July 2002 in Christchurch, New Zealand, at age 91.1,2
  • Details of Ron's life are found on Wikipedia -
    Ronald Jack Scarlett MBE (1911–2002) better known as Ron Scarlett was a paleozoologist from New Zealand.

    Scarlett was born at Stoke, near Nelson on March 22, 1911 to Walter Andrew Scarlett and Lilian Elsie (née Creswell). He was the oldest child of four brothers and four sisters. His father was an impoverished sawyer and so the family was forced to move around the upper South Island to find work in sawmills. Ron Scarlett attended six primary schools until he began to work at age 14. He had jobs on farms, in a sawmill, as a labourer, as golf greenkeeper, as gardener, as goldminer and later as trucker for a coalmine. During WW11 he spent some time as a conscientious objector in the Hamner Springs Conscientious Objectors camp. After he joined the staff of the Canterbury Museum in 1952 he became one of the most prolific osteologists of New Zealand. Scarlett became notable for his excavations over many decades on several paleontological deposits on New Zealand like Te Aute, Lake Poukawa, or the Pyramid Valley swamp where he unearthed and described the fossil remains of a Late Quaternary avifauna including bones of the Eyles' Harrier (Circus eylesi), the New Zealand Owlet-nightjar, the Scarlett's Duck (which was named by Storrs L. Olson), and the Hodgens' Waterhen. The Scarlett's Shearwater (Puffinus spelaeus) described in 1994 by Richard N. Holdaway and Trevor H. Worthy is named in his honour too. Ron Scarlett belong to the founders of the New Zealand Archaeological Association which was established in 1954. He was also a member of the Ornithological Society of New Zealand where he has frequently written contributions for the quarterly scientific journal, Notornis. In 1996 he was awarded an MBE for his services to science. Scarlett died at age 91 on July 9, 2002 in a Christchurch hospital.

    He was a well known stamp, coin and postcard collector. His extensive collections of New Zealand and Pacific Island postcards are now with the Canterbury Museum in Christchurch including a extensive collection of postcards showing views of the Chatham Islands which he had visited many times.

    and from http://www.scarlett.com.au - Newsletter 1987

    Scarletts in New Zealand – Beverley Morling’s researches revealed the presence of numbers of descendants of the Ulster family in New Zealand, and details of these have been briefly recorded earlier. Barbara Scarlett Allen accidentally discovered another of the name while she was in Christchurch during her Pacific tour, and we hope to ascertain more about his background during the year. Ronald Jack Scarlett, whom she met at the Canterbury Museum, is the foremost authority in the Dominion on the extinct moa and holds in the museum the post of Research Associate in Avian Osteology. Mr Scarlett was born at Stoke, near Nelson, on 22 March 1911, son of Walter Andrew Scarlett and Lilian Elsie (née Creswell) and he had three brothers and four sisters. He studied philosophy and sociology at Otago University and has been on the staff of the Canterbury Museum since 1952.3
