As early as 1904, whilst a pupil of Hutchins School,
Hobart, Clive Lord became interested in the subject of his
life's work-the natural history of Tasmania. In that
year a small band of enthusiasts founded the Tasmanian
Field Natural.ists' Club, and Mr. Octavius Lord took his
son to the earliest meetings.
As he passed from youth to manhood his interest in the
club and its activities grew under the inspired guidance of
such leaders as Leonard Rodway, and from an old Club
programme of 1911 we learn that Lord had by that year
reached the Honorary Secretaryship, the prineipal position in
the organisation.
