Francisco Moreno was a prominent Argentine naturalist, explorer, and geographer in the late 19th century. Counted amongst the first anthropologists of Argentina, he was appointed by the Argentine government to act as an expert (perito) in the border conflict between Argentina and Chile. He was an advocate for the region’s colonization and played a vital role in the Argentine incorporation of large parts of Patagonia and its subsequent development. Born into a traditional patrician family in Buenos Aires, he started collecting artifacts and fossils as a young boy, and created a homemade museum of his extensive collections when he was 14. Due to his family connections he was able to become a part of Argentina’s learned societies and political networks which greatly helped him in his future career. The first of the series of scientific expeditions he embarked on was a survey of Río Negro Territory. Over the ensuing years he made many other expeditions and spent several years in Europe. The adventurous young man also faced many life-threatening ordeals during his travels to savage territories but nothing could dampen his love for exploration. In his later years, he became more involved in politics and public education, and also founded the La Plata Museum of Natural History, the most important of its kind in South America.
