The man who might have been Darwin – AR Wallace – is the subject of a fascinating new exhibition at Cambridge University’s Museum of Zoology from tomorrow until February 2010.
Among the many thousands of Darwin stories that have circled the globe during the bicentenary year of his birth, AR Wallace has remained something of a forgotten man.
But this new exhibition by Fred Langford Edwards at the Downing Street museum aims to cast new light on Wallace’s theories of natural selection and evolution.
Not just Wallace. Another forgotten man whose thunder Darwin stole is Henry Walter Bates.
