    This is the largest collection of Darwin materials published online. This website allows you to view the full texts of each of Darwin's publications and his personal papers and manuscripts. This is a great resource if you are from a small school with limited resources, as it allows you to assign the full text of any of Darwin's works from The Origin of Species to The Descent of Man. Perhaps more importantly, the website includes a large amount of Darwin's personal manuscripts. This is essential for anyone who studies the History of Science. 


    What to Know: 

    • The sites design is not the most user-friendly. 
    • There are a number of search options. The search function works quite well. 
    • The site also includes every translation of Darwin's work. 

    About Jonathan

    I am currently an Adjunct Professor of History at Lynchburg College in Virginia. I received my PhD in Modern British History from Florida State University in 2016. My research explores the way in which competing definitions of masculinity influenced army reform in the mid-nineteenth century. Civilians called for moral reforms; however, they were constantly hampered by politician and military officials' financial concerns. This work offers a number of interventions in the current historiography by exploring issues of corporal punishment, soldiers' sexuality, military suicide, and soldiers' families.
