About this book

This title was originally published in 1975 and is part of UC Press's Voices Revived program, which commemorates University of California Press's mission to seek out and cultivate the brightest minds and give them voice, reach, and impact. Drawing on a backlist dating to 1893, Voices Revived makes high-quality, peer-reviewed scholarship accessible once again using print-on-demand technology.

Richard M. Eakin was a Professor of Zoology Emeritus at the University of California remembered for his unique series of zoology lectures in which he impersonated famous scientists from the past and would appear in front of his students – costumed, in make-up, and with props – to deliver "guest lectures". He chose Charles Darwin, Grego Mendel, William Harvey, and Louis Pasteur, who would probably be on most lists of great biologists, and two lesser-known scientists: William Beaumont, pre-Civil War Army surgeon who studied gastric digestion in the stomach of a fur-trapper, Alexis St. Martin; and Hans Spemann, 1935 Nobel Laureate in Physiology and Medicine, who discovered the organizer principle in embryonic development. Great Scientists Speak Again contains all six lectures. Each is preceded by an introduction giving references for the characterization.
