Alfred Russel Wallace (1823 -1913)
The Leicester Connection
New Walk Museum & Art Gallery

Alfred Wallace was one of the foremost naturalists of the nineteenth century, discovering the mechanism of the evolution of life on Earth independently of Charles Darwin. He spent a little over a year in Leicester as a young man, but this brief time was crucial to his later scientific discoveries. A small temporary display at the museum tells the story.
