Matthew (1871-1930) occupies a major position in the history of North American palaeontology. He wrote widely on palaeontology at the turn of the century, but most well known is his essay called Climate and Evolution, written in 1915, which attracted considerable attention from the palaeontological-zoological community. This biography, written by Matthew's son in law, describes the scientist's life and work.
W. D. Matthew was a monumental figure in vertebrate paleontology, and this detailed, down-to-earth biography is a convincing account of how he got that way.... The book is a rich source of detail concerning the maturation of vertebrate paleontology in North America. -- "Science Books and Films"
