Even though you've heard of Darwin, it's quite possible that you're not familiar with Alfred Russel Wallace
), co-discoverer of the theory of evolution (a shame; in many respects he's the more interesting of the two!). Fortunately you can now learn more about the man through transcripts and scans of his letters with family and colleagues, which the UK Natural History Museum have just published online
This is part of the Wallace100 project
, celebrating the centenary of his death.
