Henry Grave was a wallaby hunter on King Island during the 1880s. This image was taken by Archibald James Campbell on the Field Naturalists Expedition to King Island in 1887. Grave acted as one of the two guides for the party.

One of thirty-two black and white photographs in an album. The album also includes maps of King Island in the inside front cover and back page and numerous newspaper clippings relating to the expedition. One of the newspaper clippings, written by one of the members of the party, documents the mission of the expedition thus: 'It is our intention, before the introduction of numerous foreign plants and animals rendered it impossible to do so, to ascertain as precisely as we could in the short time at our disposal the fauna and flora indigenous to the island.'
