Harriet Morgan (1830 – 16 August 1907) née Scott was one of 19th century Australia’s most prominent natural archives illustrators and, along in the same way as her sister Helena Scott, was possibly one of the first professional female illustrators in Australia. The sisters were along with highly capable amateur naturalists and collectors, rare accomplishments for women of their time. They were most notable for their magnificent drawings of moths and butterflies for the broadcast of the first volume of their father Alexander Walker Scott’s work Australian Lepidoptera and Their Transformations.
