OriginEdit

George Vernon Hudson (1867 – 1946) was a British-born New Zealand entomologist and astronomer. Hudson is credited with proposing modern day daylight savings time. His shift-work job gave him leisure time to collect insects. This led him to value after-hours daylight so in 1895 he presented a paper to the Wellington Philosophical Society proposing a two-hour daylight saving shift. In 1933, Hudson was the first recipient of the T. K. Sidey Medal, set up by the Royal Society of New Zealand from funds collected to commemorate the passing of the Summer-Time Act 1927. Hudson's collection of insects, the largest in New Zealand, is housed in the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.
