C. Douglas Deane was formerly the Deputy Director and the Keeper of Natural Science in the Ulster Museum in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He served in the Royal Air Force during the war. He also was a member of various Government committees and other organisations relating to the natural history of Ulster and wrote regular articles in the Irish Times, Belfast Telegraph and the Belfast News Letter (Deane, 1983).[1] He joined the staff of the Museum and retired after almost forty-five years. He specialised in birds and mammals of Ireland, and was a founder member of the Ulster Society for the Protection of Birds (later RSPB) and had a keen interest in the local history and naturalists.
