Picture of Darwin’s Family Tree Discovered

Posted by admin on Sep 1, 2010

A photograph of the Charles Darwin’s family tree-the Galton-Darwin-Wedgwood pedigree-first exhibited in 1932, has been found in the archives of Truman State University.

A poster of the pedigree was prepared by Harry Hamilton Laughlin, Director of the Eugenics Record Office of the Carnegie Institute, and exhibited at the Third International Congress of Eugenics in 1932 at the American Museum of Natural History.

And now, a photograph of this poster has been discovered in the archives of Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri alongside a photograph of a poster of a collection of rare Darwin family photographs, assembled by Leonard Darwin.
