Biographical history

Alfred Edmund Walker was born on June 2, 1820 or 1821, in London, England.

He was a paleontologist. He was interested in the study of rocks and fossils of the Hamilton district. In 1895, he presented his collection of fossils acquired over a period of thirty years to the Geological Section of the Hamilton Association for the Advancement of Literature, Science and Art. He repeatedly served as Vice-President of the Association and was also President of its Geological Section. A newly discovered fossil sponge Acaulospora Walkeri was named in his honour.

In 1845, he married Fanny Murton (1824–1907). He died on April 17, 1902, in Hamilton, Ontario.
