John Warner letters and papers, 1850-1864

Mss.B.W243

Date: 1850-1864 | Size: 255 items

Abstract

The major portion of this correspondence deals with the controversy which arose when Benjamin Peirce, after having seen the manuscript of Warner's "Studies in Organic Morphology" (Philadelphia, 1857), read a paper on morphology before the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (1855). Other topics discussed include the alleged "Harvard clique," the administration of the Dudley Observatory (Albany, N.Y.), and the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey.

Background note

John Warner was an amateur mathematician and naturalist (d. 1873) who resided in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. He published on engineering subjects and organic morphology. He lived abroad from 1862 to 1868, visiting England, France, Italy, the Levant, Egypt, Greece, Constantinople, the Balkans, and Germany.
