Correspondence, Mss.

Huxley's papers and correspondence (Hist. of Sci. Film 2),ca.1846-85, from Imperial College, cover much of zoology, paleontology, and comparative anatomy, between 1850 and his death in 1895. In the 1860s and 1870s he was particularly active in research and the controversy concerning evolutionary biology and physical anthropology. His Zoological Evidences as to Man's Place in Nature (1863) was an important scientific work which applied evolutionary theory to the exploration of man's physical ancestry. Huxley manuscript papers at the Library (B/H981) include approx. 239 letters, dated between 1851 and 1896. Important sets of correspondence include those with W. H. Flower, Hugh Falconer, and Thomas Wright. Other letters are contained in the Thomas Eyton letters (B/Ey83), the Charles Lyell correspondence (B/D25.L), and the Darwin papers.
