About This Item

Handwritten signed letter from Julian Huxley to "Jack" [J. B. S. Haldane] dated November 10 '52. Notepaper with printed heading 31 Pond Street, Hampstead. 17cm x 20cm. 2pp. Congratulating Haldane on receiving the Darwin Medal from the Royal Society. Lengthy additional discussion about the delayed publication and editorial requirements of 'Evolution as a Process', with suggestions for additions to Haldane's contribution to the work, which was published in 1954. Edited by Huxley, together with A. C Hardy and H. B. Ford, both of whom are mentioned in the letter, Haldane's contributory essay being 'Statics of evolution'. Huxley and Haldane were close friends and undoubtedly the best known British biologists of the early twentieth century. A previously unrecorded letter.

Sir Julian Huxley FRS (1887 - 1975) British evolutionary biologist, philosopher.

John Burdon Sanderson Haldane FRS (1892 - 1964) Julian Huxley's brother Aldous Huxley described him as "the biologist too absorbed in his experiments to notice his friends bedding his wife".
