Research into the then fledgeling scientific discipline of palaeopalynology was introduced to the University of Sheffield in 1949 following the appointment of Leslie Moore. A thriving Palynology Research School soon developed, and has fluorished to the present day. The development and subsequent evolution of the Sheffield Palynology School is described, with a commentary on how this mirrors (and, to a certain extent, has influenced) the general development of the subject area, that in itself reflects changing academic and industrial interests. More than 300 postgraduate students have graduated through the Sheffield Palynology School, and their these/dissertations are listed in full for the first time, providing an historical archive of palynological research undertaken in Sheffield.
