The Woodson Research Center has two large collections of Julian Huxley materials, including his personal library.  Not only was he a well-known evolutionary biologist, but he also started the Biology Department at Rice University. In conjunction with an exhibit on the 3rd floor, we have digitized a small selection of Julian and Juliette Huxley’s travel photographs.
