Overview

With a foreword by S Zuckerman
The First Julian Huxley Memorial Lecture by J Needham
Sir Julian Huxley was especially noted for his versatility — great biologist, first Director-General of UNESCO, Director of the London Zoo, bird watcher, skilled popular writer of science and a tireless champion of wildlife conservation. This book is a biographical account of Huxley as revealed through his own correspondence and the correspondence of his great contemporaries. An introductory biographical summary is followed by his and others' letters and a collection of some of his writings. A complete bibliography of Huxley is included. The book would be of great interest to all biologists, students of the United Nations, historians of science and nature conservationists.
