Number Of Pages: 327

Publisher: Harvard University Press

Details: Darwin's longest running and most significant exchange of correspondence dealing with the subjects of design in nature and religious belief was with the Harvard botanist Asa Gray. Gray was one of Darwin's leading supporters in America. He was also a devout Presbyterian. The vigorous and yet civil and humble manner in which the two men debated matters of intense personal belief and social consequence serves as a model of constructive engagement. The entire extant correspondence, consisting of about 300 letters written between 1854 and 1881, is now available for the first time. Many of these letters are not yet available in print. The transcriptions have been provided and checked by the editors of the Correspondence Project. Gray was born in New York State in 1810. He qualified as a doctor but gave up medical practice after only two years to teach and study botany. He traveled in England and Europe in 1838 and it was then that he first met Joseph Hooker, son of the director of Kew Gardens.
