The evolution of primitive boat-construction and correspondence on either reading or publishing it as the Huxley Lecture. 1948-9.

In 1896 it was decided to commemorate Prof. Huxley with an annual lecture in his name. The lecturer was to be presented with a Medal, and the honour of being chosen to deliver the lecture was the highest the Institute could bestow. Negotiations were entered into with the Huxley Memorial Committee at the Royal College of Science, and an agreement was reached concerning the use of their commemorative medal. Each year the lecture was to be delivered by an eminent professor of a distinct branch of anthropology, and the lectures were to be published in the Journal. ‘Persons of distinction’ and the press were invited, and it was expected that the lecture would stimulate an interest in anthropology among the wider public. The first lecture was delivered on 13 Nov. 1900 at the Museum of Practical Geology by Lord Avebury, and entitled ‘Huxley the man and his work’ (published in Nature Vol. LXIII, pp. 92, 116 ff.); see JAI Vol. XXX, Anthropological Reviews and Miscellanea no. 120, p. 119. Francis Galton delivered the second lecture, an abstract of which can be found in Man no. 132, 1901; see also JAI Vol. XXXII 1902 Report of the Council for 1901, p. 4. Copies of further lectures can be seen in bound volumes, 114/14/1-4.
