Arthur Murchison, PhD
Charles Darwin

Dr Arthur Murchison will cover the influences of Charles Darwin: his family, his education, his supporters and detractors, the times and society in which he lived, his religion, his grand adventures during the voyage of the Beagle, his research and writings, the bad health he suffered and the principles on which his theory of speciation by natural selection is based.

On the right is a copy of a photographic portrait taken in 1881, as it appears in Life of Charles Darwin (2nd edition, 1902),written in 1882 by his son Francis Darwin. On the left is a color portrait, created by George Richmond in the late 1830s, of Darwin as a young man.

Dr. Murchison has previously made this presentation at Reason Center and, more recently, at the Renaissance Society at CSUS. If you have missed it, here is your chance to see and hear him.
