William Saville-Kent

* apologies for any cross-postings - can anyone help with information?

Dear asapARC,

Various sources attribute the discovery of pearl-culturing techniques to
William Saville-Kent. None that I've found goes into detail as to when,
where and how.

I wonder if you have or can lead me to that information. I found several
Web sites that mention Mr. Kent. One of them cites:  

Author: A. J. Harrison 
Year: 1988 
Title: William Saville - Kent, F.L.S., F.Z.S., F.R.M.S. (1845-1908) 
Journal: Papers and Proceedings of the Royal Society of Tasmania 
Volume: 122 
Number: 2 
Pages: 165-178 

Might this source contain the information I seek?
