Pythagoras and tetractys

Isaac Newton and Opticks

Charles Darwin and evolution

Marie Curie and polonium 

Albert Einstein and relativity

Stephen Hawking and wormholes

Darwin's Kids Doodled All Over His "Origin of Species" Manuscript

Today, February 12, is Darwin Day, the 206th anniversary of the famed naturalist’s birth! 

Surprisingly, we may have Charles Darwin’s children to thank for the surviving handwritten pages of the naturalist’s “On the Origin of Species” manuscript. Most of the original 600 pages are lost, and of the 45 pages that exist today, many were repurposed by Darwin’s brood of 10 children as art supplies.

Head to our blog to see many more of these doodles and learn about the Museum’s Darwin Manuscripts Project.
