Biographical history

Thurston Castle Lacalli was born on 4 August 1946 in Seattle, Washington. He attended the University of Washington, graduating with a BSc in Chemistry in 1968. Lacalli accepted a fellowship at Churchill College, Cambridge and stayed for one term, prior to enrolling at the University of British Columbia where he earned his PhD in Zoology in 1973. He had post-doctoral fellowships at McGill and UBC prior to accepting a position at the University of Saskatchewan in 1977. By 1985 he had been made a full professor. Lacalli has authored over 57 academic papers and has frequently been invited to give conference presentations regarding his work. He retired from the University in 2002.

Custodial history

Scope and content

Dr. Lacalli's research involves the embryology and larval forms of marine invertebrates: principally, the development of the nervous system and the formation pattern in these organisms. His work has included theoretical, computer-based studies of how pattern and formation appear de novo in embryos as they develop, and microanatomical studies (primarily, via serial electron microscopy) of the developing nervous system in simple invertebrates near the evolutionary stem from which vertebrates, with their advanced nervous system, evolved. The process developed by Lacalli enabled an image of the whole body of their specimens in one micrograph, a relatively rare achievement and one which enabled him to analyse the nervous system in far more detail than was previously possible. This fonds contains an extensive collection of the electron micrographs taken by Lacalli, together with research notes, offprints, and other documentation relating to his research activities
