About this book

A history of the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard, established by Louis Agassiz in 1859. Agassiz was a believer in creationism, but his son soon became an ardent follower of Darwin's theory of evolution, with an inevitable conflict between them. This book charts the changes that have occurred at the museum, developments which reflect the changing face of zoology.
