Join the Harvard Museum of Natural History in celebrating the bicentenary of Alfred Russel Wallace’s birth.

If you are not familiar with Alfred Russel Wallace, you are not alone.

Wallace (1823–1913) holds a relatively obscure place in the history of science, despite discovering the theory of evolution by natural selection independently of Charles Darwin.

On the bicentenary of his birth and in celebration of Earth Day, the Harvard Museum of Natural History will spotlight Wallace’s contributions to our understanding of biodiversity and highlight why they are relevant to science today.

Harvard students will share his legacy as a visionary scientist, a daring naturalist, and a passionate human rights advocate through stories and objects that reflect his professional achievements and travels in the Amazon and Indonesia.

Free with regular museum admission.

Free event parking starting at noon at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.

Presented by the Harvard Museum of Natural History and the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture
