Ternate, Indonesia – As some of you know who have been following my commentaries, I have been on a search for Ali, the assistant to Alfred Wallace, the great adventurer who, in 1858, published the Ternate paper.
This paper, along with those of Charles Darwin, was the beginning of evolution in science. It is stated in the Malay Archipelago that Ali married and later moved to Ternate. While here I hired a car and driver to find him.
