Griffith Taylor was a London-born Austalian geologist who was considered By the rest of his crew the wittiest member of the Terra Nova expedition. In The Worst Journey In The World, Cherry Garrard wrote of Taylor that "his tongue wagged, and the arguments he led were legion. The hut was a merrier place for his presence".
