Abstract:

Review of the historical content of Singapore Science Centre's 2013-14 exhibition about the great 19th century naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace (1823 - 1913). Wallace was the co-discoverer with Charles Darwin of evolution by natural selection and this article questions the veracity of the exhibition's account of what 'sparked' Wallace's great discovery.
