Admin HistoryColonel Henry Mellish (1856-1927) of Hodsock Priory, Nottinghamshire was an enthusiastic amateur meteorologist. He was President of the Royal Meteorological Society, 1909-1910, and maintained a recording station at Hodsock from 1875 to about 1925. His meteorological library was given to the University Library together with his meteorological records (filed in Manuscripts with the reference Met/Me).

The Collection was for many years actively maintained, with the purchase of monographs and periodicals.
