Abstract or Summary
  • From the 1860s into the 1920s Edward Sylvester Morse (1838-1925) was a staunch advocate of Darwinian evolution and of science education in the U. S. and likewise for several years in Japan. He had a major impact on the American public’s understanding of evolution, both before and after he became president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 1886. Without him, the American public would have been less interested in nature and far less cognizant of evolution. Morse is a prominent example of a self-reliant biologist of his era who relished a broad approach to studying the human and natural world, from archeology to zoology.
