James Peter Hill (1873 - 1954) University of Edinburgh, Royal College of Science in London, and demonstrator in Sydney, Australia. His extensive embryo collection was transferred and added to the Hubrecht Collection in 1966 from the University College London by his daughter Catherine Kirkham Jones. Both collections have subsequently been transferred to Embryological Collection, Museum für Naturkunde, Leibniz Institute for Research on Evolution and Biodiversity.

"By far the largest addition to the Hubrecht Collection was the material collected by James Peter Hill (1873-1954). This consists of about 3,000 bottles of material in alcohol 28,000 microscope slides specimens blocked out in wax; detailed field and laboratory notebooks, and other documentation; and photographs, including pairs of stereomicrographs of platypus and other embryos, to be viewed with the special pair of viewing glasses which survive in the collection."[1]
