Darwin Manuscripts Project Launches New Two-Year Project

The Darwin Manuscripts Project has been awarded a two-year grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to digitize 30,000 of Darwin's scientific manuscripts and letters. The "Foundations of Darwin's Science: A Digital Manuscripts Collection" will allow the Darwin Manuscripts Project to mount high resolution scans of the entire set of Darwin's scientific manuscripts that are directly concerned with evolutionary science.
