Exploring the Borderlands: Documents of the Committee on Common Problems of Genetics, Paleontology & Systematics, 1943-1944 (Transaction 94-2)
Joe Cain (ed); Ernst Mayr (fr)
Transaction 94 No. 2
This study reproduces one “Report of Meetings” & six “Bulletins” from the Committee on Common Problems of Genetics, Paleontology, & Systematics. This Committee operated as an administrative unit of the National Research Council, part of the U.S. Nat. Acad. of Science. It was launched in 1943, blossomed for two years, then served as a cornerstone for other cooperative projects. The Committee provided a crucial foothold for those seeking a synthetics view of evolution in 1940s America. These forgotten documents show the Committee at work: building coalitions, defining priorities, & negotiating a common vision. They also show factions within the Committee competing for the leadership of this emerging community. Photo.
