[Source - Chloe Rushovich for FHYA, 2017, using the British Museum website; Nessa Leibhammer for FHYA using Wikipedia, 2016: Sir Henry Ernest Gascoyne Bulwer, the nephew of Sir Henry Lytton Bulwer, was a British colonial administrator and diplomat. He was the Lieutenant Governor of the Colony of Natal from 1875-1880, and the Governor of the Colony of Natal and Special Commissioner for Zulu Affairs from 1882-1885. He was the High Commissioner for Cyprus from 1886 - 1892, wherein he restricted archaeological excavations to public bodies undertaking scientific research, which led to the creation of the Cyprus Exploration Fund. He also reformed the Cyprus Museum. Bulwer himself was also an avid collector. Much of his own collection of antiquities and ethnographic material was donated to Cambridge University, where they are now housed at the Fitzwilliam Museum and the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.]
