Biographical Note

If I am to be remembered, I hope it will not be primarily for my specialized scientific work, but as a generalist; one to whom, enlarging Terence's words, nothing human and nothing in external nature was alien. Julian S. Huxley, Memories

Julian Sorell Huxley, the grandson of Thomas Henry Huxley and great-nephew of Matthew Arnold, was born June 22, 1887. The union of the Huxley and Arnold families brought about a happy combination of what Julian's younger brother Aldous would call blue genes, but the combined family traditions also imposed an obligation of intellectual excellence and social responsibility. This obligation was keenly felt by Julian Huxley from an early age. It was enhanced by his affinity for the interests which had earned his grandfather his place in the history of science, and thus, it soon became apparent that young Julian would be Thomas Huxley's intellectual heir as well as his grandson. This inheritance would prove both a joy and a burden, for while Julian Huxley achieved great renown as a scientist and popularizer of science, he was plagued, like his grandfather, by serious and debilitating attacks of depression. In spite of this he was able, throughout a long career, to contribute significantly to the fields of ethology, ecology and cancer research, and to act effectively as a powerful proponent of neo-Darwinism.

He was educated at Eton and Oxford, where he followed his own inclinations and his grandfather's example by studying Natural Science. His scientific interests were combined with literary talents which were officially recognized in 1908, when he was awarded the Newdigate Prize for English Verse at Oxford, an honor which he remembered with pride even after a lifetime of honors and accomplishments. (It is note-worthy and characteristic that he spent his prize money on a microscope.)

After completing his schooling, he began his career at the institution which had taught him: in 1910, he became a lecturer in Zoology at Oxford. Two years later, however, he departed from the course traditional to a young man of his academic interests and social background. He left England and Oxford to accept a position as Research Associate at the newly established Rice Institute in Houston, Texas, and by 1913 he had become Assistant Professor of Biology there. He remained in Houston until 1916 when he returned to Europe to take part in World War I.

After serving as an army intelligence officer in Italy, he came home to marry and to take up a position as Senior Demonstrator in Zoology at Oxford. From 1919 to 1925 he remained at Oxford, carrying out his famous axolotl experiments and participating in the university's expedition to Spitsbergen. In 1925 he became Professor of Zoology at King's College, University of London. But he did not remain long in that position. The following year he made a decision which, like his decision to teach at the Rice Institute, would move him away from the path followed by most of his fellow scientists. He accepted the invitation of H.G. Wells to collaborate on what would become The Science of Life, and in 1927 resigned his position at King's College. This meant a new direction for his career, for although he was Fullerian Professor of Physiology in the Royal Institution from 1927 to 1929, after that he held no academic position. For ten years he was a private person working to advance his ideas about the biological sciences not as a researcher nor as a teacher, but as a writer on scientific developments and their relationship to contemporary social issues.

In 1935 he accepted the position of Secretary of the Zoological Society of London. In this capacity he had the means to encourage solid research on animal behavior while introducing innovative methods for implementing his vision of the zoo as an educational institution. Unfortunately his leadership aroused the displeasure of some members of the Society, and in 1942 he resigned under pressure. He continued, however, his work as a writer and lecturer and was known throughout war-time Britain for his participation as a panel member of the BBC Brains Trust program.

The end of the war brought an opportunity for him to put many of his cherished ideals and projects into practice. True to family tradition, he had always viewed science, art and literature as part of a great whole. Thus when he became a member of the commission formed to plan what would become Unesco, he ensured that science would be an integral part of the educational and cultural institution. When in 1946 he became Unesco's first Director-General, he set out a program cosmopolitan in vision, one concerned with mankind in relationship with nature and with its past, one in which art and science were equally valued. He even went so far as to advocate his own solution to the troubling questions of modern society, his religion of scientific humanism, as an official basis for Unesco's philosophy. This he himself came later to find unwise. During his tenure as Director-General he also began to articulate fully the concerns which would occupy the later years of his life: the relation of overpopulation to poverty and ignorance, the necessity for the conservation of wilderness and wildlife, and the importance of the renunciation of parochial views on religion and politics. Finally, he came to stress even more strongly than before his optimistic belief that mankind can and should take control of its own environmental and biological destiny.

In 1948 his term of office with Unesco came to an end and Huxley was once again a private citizen. The remainder of his life was spent traveling, lecturing and writing in support of the causes to which he was devoted: evolutionary theory and its significance for potential human development, ecology and the preservation of wildlife and population control. He was honored often for his contributions to science and to society, receiving prizes and awards for his efforts in helping the general public to better understand contemporary scientific thought. In 1958 he received a knighthood. In 1965, in a culmination of work he began in his youth with his field studies of the behavior of the great crested grebe, he organized a Royal Society Symposium on the Ritualization of Behavior in Animals and Man, and in 1970 he received the International Union for the Conservation of Nature Gold Medal for outstanding contributions to scientific research related to conservation.

On February 14, 1975, at the age of 87, Sir Julian Huxley died. His life had been long, beginning in the Victorian era and ending in a world which his grandfather could scarcely have imagined. He served many of the causes with which the 20th century will no doubt become identified, and his influence on the development of contemporary biological science was considerable. Through his field studies of animal behavior and his synthetic approach to Darwinian evolutionary theory and Mendelian genetics, he helped determine the direction of modern biology. As an educator his influence was incalculable, for he taught not only such men as E.B. Ford and A.C. Hardy, but through his writings, perhaps millions of men and women as well. He was, moreover, known for his encouragement of aspiring scientists and scholars. In his catholic interests, in his belief in the interrelationship of science and arts, he extended his influence beyond the laboratory of the classroom and reached artists, writers, musicians, politicians and finally the general public. Such interests and such influence indicate that his desire to be known as one to whom nothing human and nothing in external nature was alien was fulfilled.

Scope and Contents

The collection documents Huxley's role as a synthesizer and educator who influenced thinking in many areas, including studies of taxonomy and relative growth, pioneering work in ethology, and important writing in the early twentiety-century synthesis of Mendelian genetics and Darwinian theory. His belief that evolution was not only biological but social and cultural as well led to interests in eugenics, population control, conservation and humanist movements. Linking scientists, science and other fields and science and the public, Huxley corresponded with such scientists, artists, writers and social figures as Kenneth Clark, J.B.S. Haldane, H.J. Muller, Bertrand Russell, Stephen Spender and H.G. Wells. Other materials found in the papers include original writings, publications of others, organizational, conference and travel materials, personal diaries, photographs and memorabilia.

Correspondence forms approximately one-third of the papers. It exemplifies the shape of the collection as a whole in that its volume increases steadily from the early years onward, peaking in the 1950s and 1960s and diminishing sharply during the times of Sir Julian's depressions. The most substantive part of the collection, the correspondence, not only includes letters from many twentieth-century intellectual, social and cultural leaders, but also provides the most information about Sir Julian and his myriad activities. Sir Julian's own writings -- published and unpublished - comprise another one-third of the collection.

Julian Sorell Huxley - Papers, 1899-1980, MS 50, Woodson Research Center, Fondren Library, Rice University

Acquisition Information

In the spring of 1978, Juliette Huxley approached Rice University regarding the manuscript collection of her late husband, Julian Sorell Huxley. With work and support towards its acquisition by Mr. And Mrs. John F. Heard, Mr. And Mrs. C.M. Hudspeth, Mrs. Hardin Craig, Jr., Mr. And Mrs. Harris Masterson III, Professor Wilfred S. Dowden, the Friends of Fondren Library and British intermediary Anthony Rota of Bertram Rota, Ltd., the collection arrived at Rice in 1980, to be followed by Sir Julian's scientific library of approximately 1,200 books, pamphlets and journals. Separated from the main collection shortly before Sir Julian's death, a 1500-piece archive which Huxley called his box files was acquired from an American dealer as well. The collection was processed in 1983/1984 with the aid of a Higher Education Act Title II-C grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The manuscript processors were Sarah C. Bates and Mary G. Winkler; the assistant processor was Christina Riquelmy. Project director and assistant director were Nancy Boothe Parker and Lauren R. Brown.

Processing Information

Except for correspondence, which was arranged in rough chronological order, the collection as received was virtually unorganized. Therefore a format/ subject arrangement was chosen by the processors.

Detailed Description of the Collection

Series I: Early Materials, 1891-1909

Scope and Contents note
This series includes documents which predate 1909, the year of Huxley's graduation from Oxford. Here are some of the most personal glimpses of Huxley, in journals, drawings, schoolwork, poems and other writings. While the series contains a typescript of a poem by Enid Bagnold, dated 1908, most pre-1909 works by others have been separated to Series X: Manuscripts, Publications, and Addresses by Others, because there is evidence that Huxley did not receive them until after 1909. For other early materials, see Series XIV: Box Files, especially the file entitled "Birds and Bird-Watching". The series does not include visual materials and correspondence.

Series II: Family Correspondence, ca. 1900-1980

Scope and Contents note
This series consists of the lifetime correspondence with members of his large and talented family, except for some letters retained by the family. There are, for example, none from his grandfather Thomas Henry Huxley, and few from his brother Aldous. There are, however, letters from his brother Trevenen, his sister Margaret, his half-brothers David and Andrew and from his numerous Arnold, Arnold-Forster and Eckersley relatives. The family correspondence is filed in alphabetical order according to the name of the family member. A family tree appears in the index to this guide and a card file of family members is included in the first box in this series. Family correspondence is often addressed to both Sir Julian and his wife, or to Juliette individually. These letters are filed among those addressed to Huxley alone.
Undated correspondence has been treated somewhat differently. In cases where the decade is known, the letters will be filed at the end of that decade. Letters without any date are filed together in alphabetical order by name of the correspondent at the end of the correspondence series. Note: Some correspondence can also be found in Series XIV: Box Files.

Series III: General Correspondence, 1904-1980

Scope and Contents note
This correspondence includes the names of some of the most significant cultural, political and scientific figures of the 20th century. Moreover, the content is substantive, chronicling the immense variety of Huxley's interests and the influence which he exerted in the fields of science and culture, and includes letters to Huxley as well as drafts and carbon copies from him.
This series contains not only "general" correspondence, but also a sampling of the variety of letters a prominent or controversial figure might expect to receive: petitions for aid, crank letters, even hate mail, as well as expressions of support and admiration. Of particular interest are the letters from the correspondents listed in the index at the back of this guide. This correspondence is filed chronologically with the other more general correspondence in order to present a more accurate picture of its context. No enclosures which are themselves correspondence are indexed. In cases where a letter has an attachment, both items are found filed under the date of the letter to which the attachment is affixed.
Undated correspondence has been treated somewhat differently. In cases where the decade is known, the letters will be filed at the end of that decade. Letters without any date are filed together in alphabetical order by name of the correspondent at the end of the correspondence series.
Various officers of organizations do not necessarily appear as individual correspondents in this index. Examples of such organizations include the United Nations, International Planned Parenthood Foundation, the Population Council, British Medical Association and others. Look for the organization name in the General Correspondence index.
Note: Some correspondence in also to be found in Series XIV: Box Files.

Series IV: Journals, Diaries, and Notebooks

Scope and Contents note
This series contains pocket diaries, journals, notes, exercise books and calendars kept by Huxley from 1910 until his death, arranged in chronological order. They are rich in information of both personal and scientific nature. From his youth, there are notebooks of biological drawings, bird-watching notes, class notes and essays. The pocket diaries of the later period contain appointments, itineraries and observations about activities in which he was involved at various times. Those notebooks from Huxley's Oxford and University of London period also contain faculty lists and university schedules.
Of particular interest are the journals kept by Huxley throughout his life which provide a wealth of biographical material. Other journals which relate to his travels are found in the TRAVEL MATERIALS series. Notebooks containing drafts of his autobiography are found in Series V: Manuscripts, Typescripts, and Notes.
Pre-1909 materials are found in Series I: Early Materials.

Series V: Manuscripts, Typescripts, and Notes

Scope and Contents note
This series contains notes, manuscripts and typescripts written by Huxley between 1910 and 1974. This series is particularly rich because it details the development of his thought and conveys the variety of his interests. There are poems and short stories written when he was a young man, notes on scientific work and classroom lectures given during the period when he taught biology. (N.B. Among these are a series of lectures he prepared while at Rice.) The series also contains manuscripts and/ or typed copies of articles, book reviews, drafts of letters to editors and public lectures. Of special interest are the manuscripts for the Romanes Lecture (1943), the Kalinga Prize Speech (1953), the Lasker Award Address (1959) and the John Danz Lecture (1962); and those of The Science of Life, The Humanist Frame, From an Antique Land and both volumes of Huxley's autobiography, Memories.
The manuscripts, typescripts and notes are in chronological order. However, many of the notes and manuscript fragments are on undated scraps of paper and some are almost illegible. Therefore, although the greatest care has been taken to ascertain the date for each fragment, it was impossible to accurately place each manuscript or note. The researcher should bear this in mind when using these materials.

Series VI: Publications by Julian Huxley, 1920-1974

Scope and Contents note
The publications series contains material (exclusive of books) published by Sir Julian: reprints of scholarly works, newspaper and magazine articles, as well as letters to editors and reviews of the works of others. This series covers the time period from 1920 to 1974, and is arranged in chronological order. A list of these materials is in the first folder of the first box in the series.
The series does not comprise the whole of Sir Julian's printed work. It consists, rather, of those reprints and clippings which he retained in his files.

Series VII: Travel Materials, 1912-1965

Scope and Contents note
This series comprises a mixture of travel diaries, notes, collected documents and memorabilia such as programs and exhibit catalogues filed chronologically by the year of each trip. Newspaper articles included here provide more information than the often sketchy notes, telling of Huxley's debate on Soviet science with Nuzhdin in Karachi, 1954, or his attendance at a meeting concerned with nuclear weapons in New York in 1961. Unesco is well represented here, with diaries of the 1946-47 trips to South and Central America and the 1948-49 trip to Central Europe and the Middle East. Note that conference materials and photographs have been separated to their respective categories, including the 1959 U.S. trip for the Darwin Centenary, the Wroclaw conference, 1948, and the Indian Science Conference, 1954. Note also that some of the publications collected as part of Huxley's travel assignments - reports on conservation for example - are filed with MANUSCRIPTS, PUBLICATIONS AND ADDRESSES BY OTHERS. Materials on Huxley's Russian trip may also be found in the BOX FILES.

Series VIII: Conference Materials, 1934-1965

Scope and Contents note
This series contains papers relating to conferences, meetings and symposia in which Huxley took part. These papers include programs, newspaper clippings, abstracts and papers of participants, and Huxley's notes and speech manuscripts. Correspondence concerning the conferences included in this series is to be found among the Huxley correspondence files. In some cases, however, copies of original letters have been included with the relevant conference or symposium papers.
Materials from conferences which Huxley did not attend are filed in the MANUSCRIPTS, PUBLICATIONS AND ADDRESSES BY OTHERS series.
Of particular interest among the conference materials are papers dealing with the Wroclaw (Breslau) Conference, the Darwin Centennial Observation and the Royal Society Symposium on Ritualization of Behavior in Animals and Man.

Series IX: Organizational Materials

Scope and Contents note
While Series I: General Correspondence contains substantive and personal communications between Sir Julian and members of specific organizations, this series includes membership rosters, reports and newsletters, speeches, minutes and memoranda, organizational publications, notes, press releases and clippings. The organizations represented here reflect Huxley's varied interest in biology, humanism, eugenics and population control and conservation. Occasionally files overlap: the founding of the World Wildlife Fund is documented in the "Nature Conservancy" and "World Wildlife Fund" files; the Galapagos Island expedition is recorded in the Royal Society's Pacific Expedition Committee minutes and in the "Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galapagos Islands" file. Most items fall in the 1940-1966 period.
Some organizations, such as the Royal Society and Eugenics Society, have fairly complete runs of material over a period of years; most, however, such as the Naples Zoological Station, are represented by only a few documents, or, as in the case of Unesco, several unrelated items spanning many years of sporadic collecting. Two files with perhaps the most original and complete materials are those concerning the Unesco "History of the Social and Cultural Development of Mankind" for the years 1948-1966 and a discussion group active in the 1950s, the "Idea Systems Group." Organizations which solicited Sir Julian's support also have material in this series - such as the Religious Society of Families, a eugenically-based community in the United States.
Government publications and publications sponsored by an organization but authored by individuals are in the MANUSCRIPTS, PUBLICATIONS AND ADDRESSES BY OTHERS series. See also CONFERENCE MATERIALS for organizational material on specific events.

Series X: Manuscripts, Publications, and Addresses by Others

Scope and Contents note
Materials in this series resemble those in the CLIPPINGS files in that their subject matter spans Huxley's interests: from professional and popular science to conservation and population control to fine arts, education, religion and philosophy. Arranged chronologically by year and alphabetically by first author within each year, the series includes articles from scientific journals, typescripts and galleys sent to Huxley by friends and colleagues, radio and television scripts, government reports on conservation and population, poems and topical newspaper articles on such subjects as photography and travel. Publications by other members of the Huxley family are included in this series.
Materials whose date is unknown are arranged alphabetically and follow dated publications. Reviews of books not by Huxley have been gathered together and arranged chronologically following all other publications, several reviews are by well-known figures such as Stephen Spender and Arnold Toynbee. Reviews of Huxley's books are filed in the CLIPPINGS - Biographical Materials series.
Folder 1 contains a list of the material in this series, which excludes papers presented at conferences which Huxley attended (see CONFERENCE MATERIALS), documents enclosed with correspondence (see GENERAL CORRESPONDENCE) or organizational reports and publications (see ORGANIZATIONAL MATERIALS). Much material similar to that found here is in Huxley's subject arranged BOX FILES. Short newspaper articles on current events and topics are found in the CLIPPINGS series. Note also that much of Huxley's library is owned by rice. Runs of journals and some pamphlets are part of this separate collection.

Clippings have been left with related materials wherever possible; for instance, articles about Huxley's trips are found in the Series VII: Travel Materials. Clippings attached to correspondence have been left with the appropriate letter.
The files are divided into two subseries: "Biographical Materials" and "General Clippings." "Biographical Materials" consists primarily of articles about Huxley but also includes vitae and bibliographies. They are arranged chronologically by year with reviews of Huxley's books separated and filed following the appropriate year(s) of biographical materials. Huxley's controversial activities and the public's response are well documented: his 1920 thyroid experiments, his Conway Lecture in 1930, the 1942 "zoo controversy" and his warnings about overpopulation and ecological dangers in the 1950s and 1960s. Reviews of books about or by other Huxley family members are also found here.
"General Clippings" report current events, information on friends and colleagues, and oddities (labeled by Huxley). Subjects represented here reflect Huxley's varied interests in science, politics, the arts, religion and philosophy, including, for example, clippings about the Scopes Trial, population control and conservation and issues of African independence. Arrangement is chronological with dating following Huxley's notation: day/month/year.

Series XII: Photographs and Visual Materials

Scope and Contents note
This contains photographs, slides, cartoons and sketches of the collection, as well as maps and Audubon bird prints. The collection spans Huxley's life and interests, including photographs of Eton school fellows, professional associates, colleagues and friends, and sketches of plant life, travels and expeditions. Of special interest are the photographs of Texas flora and fauna, the Oxford expedition to Spitsbergen, Huxley's several trips to Russia, and his later travels, first for Unesco and later as an expression of his own interests. There are also photographs of family members and friends, including a fine portrait of H.G. Wells, and several cartoons of Unesco figures, as well as many pictures recording animal behavior.
One of the most beautiful portions of the series are the drawings made by Huxley. These drawings range in subject matter from biological drawings to sketches and doodles. There are also one or two landscapes in pencil and some lovely drawings of plants.
There are also numerous miscellaneous photographs of people and places, as well as slides either taken by Huxley or sent to him by friends or colleagues.
The photographs and visual materials are arranged according to subject matter rather than in chronological order, and care has been taken to leave together photographs which arrived at this archive in groups.

Series XIII: Memorabilia

Scope and Contents note
This series is by its nature the most miscellaneous and eclectic of the collection, for it contains both personal and professional souvenirs and mementos from 1910 until Huxley's death. These are arranged by decade in chronological order, and include playbills and concert programs, banquet menus, limericks and jokes, copies of legal documents, awards, citations and membership certificates, Christmas card and guest lists, and names and addresses of friends and associates.
There is also a sampling of curiosities and souvenirs which were of interest to Huxley and kept by him: picture post cards, unusual advertisements, travel brochures and business cards.
Series XV: BOX FILES also contains a large collection of picture post cards.

Series XIV: Box Files

Scope and Contents note
Sir Julian collected reprints, clippings, notes, lectures and correspondence and filed them by subject in his box files. These files were sold to a dealer in the 1970s who compiled a contents listing and rough name index for them (available on request). The listing also includes a biographical note and a general description of the file contents.
Materials in the BOX FILES span the same dates as the core collection and are most numerous during the same period, 1940-1970. Of special note are notes on the Crested Grebe in the "Birds and Bird-Watching" file, the files on Russia and a collection of about 200 picture postcards.
