Henry Hurd Swinnerton

Henry Hurd Swinnerton (1875–1966) was a British geologist (Not to be confused with American geologist A.C. Swinnerton). He was professor of geology at University College Nottingham from 1910 to 1946.

Swinnerton was educated at the Royal College of Science, and earned a doctorate in zoology (D.Sc) from the University of London in July 1902.[1]

In the 1930s Swinnerton was a member of the Fenland Research Committee, contributing valuable knowledge of the geomorphology of the Lincolnshire coast.[2] In 1942 he was awarded the Murchison Medal of the Geological Society of London.
