Free PDFs of Interesting Wallace Magazines

At the conclusion of the Alfred Russel Wallace Centenary Celebration, in Autumn 2015, Richard Milner, Associate in Anthropology at the American Museum of Natural History, produced and edited excellent special Wallace Issues of Natural History magazine and Skeptic magazine, both of which are now available to all as free downloads.

The Natural History edition contains a superb biographical article on Wallace by Sir David Attenborough, beautiful color photos of Birds of Paradise by Tim Laman and Edwin Scholes, selections from the Wallace letters by George Beccaloni, and noteworthy articles by Andrew Berry, Errol Fuller, and others. The Skeptic magazine features articles by Michael Shermer, Richard Conniff, Jim Costa, Richard Milner, and Lee Dukatkin, who (using new research in animal behavior) argues against ARW’s views on the uniqueness of human behavior.

These may be freely shared, reproduced, and used for classes and other scholarly non-commercial purposes courtesy of Milner’s Centenary Celebration, which was sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation.
