Thomas Henry Huxley, 1893. Leaning on a pile of books and holding a skull. English scientist remembered as 'Darwin's Bulldog'. Huxley was the main supporter of Darwin and did more than anyone else to break down religious and obscurantist opposition to the theory of evolution. He produced over 150 research papers on a wide range of subjects, mainly zoological and palaeontological, but also geological, anthropological and botanical. Artist: Leopold Flameng.
