 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.
