Robert Harvey of Truro was a close business partner with John Thomas North, known as 'The Nitrate King'. They made their fortunes in nitrates in the northern deserts of Chile. My biography of "The Nitrate King: A biography of 'Colonel' John Thomas North" has just been published, in the University of London series 'Studies of the Americas'. There is a great deal of background information on Robert Harvey, which will be of interest to descendants.
