John Falconer, British Library 
A Biographical Dictionary of 19th Century Photographers in South and South-East Asia

Amateur, India
Professor of Natural Science and Mathematics, Presidency College, Calcutta 1856-62;[1] a skilled amateur photographer in 1850s.
On the proposal in 1857 that the photographic equipment bought for use in tuition at the Presidency College be placed under Halleur’s charge, the Company replied: ‘We observe that Mr Gordon Young proposes to place the photographic apparatus under the charge of Dr Halleur Professor of Natural Philosophy in the Presidency College, who is well skilled in the art, and to make the apparatus available for any purposes. for which it may be required in any branch of the College. The apparatus could not be entrusted to anyone more capable of using it efficiently than Dr Halleur but that gentleman has not the necessary leisure, we presume, to give instruction in the art; and we are desirous, therefore, that our suggestion for introducing the study of it into some of the Government Colleges or Schools may be reconsidered at an early period; with a view to the instruction of pupils who may look to ultimate employment in the Engineer Public Works or Trigonometrical or Revenue Survey Departments, the art being usefully applied in the Ordnance Survey of Great Britain.’[2]
