 Author:  Darwin, Charles, 1809-1882Requires cookie*
 Title:  An Annotated Calendar of the Letters of Charles Darwin in the Library of the American Philosophical Society  

 
 
 Dates:  1799-1882 
 Abstract:  One of the most important natural historians in nineteenth-century Britain, Charles Darwin provided the first compelling mechanism to account for organismal evolutionary change. In at least two letters in the Darwin collection, the naturalist reflects upon the nature of race. In a letter dated 8 October [1845], Darwin questions whether there is a connection between race and susceptibility to different types of lice. In a letter dated 25 October [1859], Darwin dispels other scientists' claims that there are several species of man.

 Author:  Eugenics Record Office .Requires cookie*
 Title:  Eugenics Record Office Records  

 
 
 Dates:  1670-1964 
 Abstract:  Eugenics was inevitably entangled in many aspects of American social and political life, and particularly in setting and supporting national policy with regard to immigration and the treatment of ethnic and racial minorities. The ERO Records reflect the eugenical fascination with identifying race-based traits and with locating clear lines of demarcation between the races in terms of behavior, intelligence, and physical characteristics. Race is a particularly clear factor in several files in the Trait Files Series I (documenting the inheritance of purportedly discrete genetic characteristics): "Jamaica anthropometry" (Box 4), "Race suicide and childlessness" (Box 7), "Twins, Negro" (Box 13), "Skin color," "Spotted skin," and "Mulattoes" (Box 26), "Finger prints - Jamaica schoolchildren" and "Woolly hair" (Box 27) and several files under the heading "Race," "Race crossing," and "Negro" (Box 61, 62, 64). The Fitter Family Studies (Series VI) displays an equal concern for racial demarcation, and include some correspondence with the Race Betterment Foundation.

 Author:  Foulke, William Parker, 1816-1865Requires cookie*
 Title:  William Parker Foulke Papers, 1840-1865  

 
 
 Dates:  1840-1865 
 Abstract:  Among his many interests, Foulke was concerned with the colonization of West Africa for settlement of ex-slaves. As an agent for the Pennsylvania Colonization Society, Foulke kept a valuable diary of his activities in 1852. Colonization also appears as a theme in his correspondence with Edward Everett (1794-1865), Elliott Cresson (1796-1854), John H. B. Latrobe (1803-1891), William Francis Lynch (1801-1865), and William McLain (1855-1857), among others. Many of the above letters have been digitized, and a gallery to promote the study of the colonization cause in the Foulke Papers can be found here: https://diglib.amphilsoc.org/gallery-colonization-foulke
