THE SIGNiriGANCE OF THE
LITE AND WORK OF DARWIN
By Dean C. E. Bessey
In tho world's history it hns oc
curred again and again that there
was need of "a volco In tho wilder
ness," and It was so when Darwin
came and began to cry In tho biolog
ical wilderness of tho middle of tho
nineteenth century. Like tho other
great biologist, Llnno, who was born
a century earlier, Darwin's great
work was not some notablo contri
bution to tho anatomy, tho physiology
or tho taxonomy of any group of
plants or animals, but It consisted iu
putting biological science upon a now
plane, a higher piano than that which
It had occupied bdforo. As Llnno
gave to biology a comprehensible tax--onomy
which made It impossible for
separated workers to Intelligently and
accurately communicate and compare
their resultB; Darwin mado possible a
taxonomy which Involves phylogeny.
Linno's classification was oaslly un
derstood and oaslly applied, and this
was Its great merit. It saved tho
time of tho blologlBt, but it did not,
nor Indeed was It Intonded to give
any clue as to tho real relationships
of plants and anlmalB. Darwin's
work mado nocssary tho Introduction
of the idea of relatlonshlo in classi
fication. It may bo asked, "What may all
this mean for tho ordinary student
In tho university?" It Is granted
that for the student In botany and zoo
logy. Darwin's work Is of high Im
portance, but on what ground may
general students claim an Interest in
Darwin's accomplishments? I am so
fortunate as to have seen something
of the time preceding Darwin's fa
mous publications. I saw with my
own eyes tho conflict between tho
old and tho now ideas; tho old and
tho new philosophy off tho world. Jt
was worth while living through that
period, for it allowed mo to see tho
fierce onslaught, tho long continued
battle, the dogged resistance, tho re
pulso, the retreat and finally the com
pleto rout of tho attacking forces.
It quickens my pulso today as I look
back to those years when tho battle
was still raging. I was personally
so fortunate as to bo a student In
a college whore to espouse tho now
doctrine of evolution was not consid
ered a Blgn of moral depravity. In
fact, aB nearly as I can mako out. all
of tho members of tho faculty were
evolutionists. So wo woro freo to
becomo evolutionists If wo felt so In
cllnod. But In many colleges of that
period tho doctrlno of ovolutlon could
not bo taught, and I know of ono
state unlvorslty In ono of our neigh
boring states In which profossors and
students who woro suspected of har
boring such horetlcal notions woro
discriminated against and mado tho
subject of denunciatory chapel ha
rangues. Thought was not freo In
most of tho collogos of that porlod.
Tho student today can not roallzo
what a change has heen wrought,
Tho battle so bravely waged by tho
Darwinians and finally won by them
gavo intellectual freedom to students
In tho collogos and universities,
whothor thoy sat In tho professor's
chair or on tho studont benches. And
today professors are freo to put any
doctrlno boforo their pupils, provldod
It is well and decently clothed, and
often evon this precaution Is not
rigidly Insisted upon. Tho fight for
freedom four to flvo decades ago has
freed tho college of tho old-tlmo In
tellectual trammels, and for thiB tho
Btudent today has cause to bo grate
ful to those who battled for him. For
this tho general studont has as much
reason for colobratlng tho birth of
Charles Darwin as has tho scientific
studont. Darwin waB jnoro than a
scientific man, ho was a propoundor
of a new philosophy, and In this ca
pacity ho became tho apostlo of In
