Caption

Syms Covington. Portrait of Syms Covington (1816- 61), a fiddler and cabin boy on the British ship HMS Beagle who became Charles Darwin's assistant. During the Beagle's voyage (1831-36) Covington helped Darwin (1809-82) to preserve specimens. After the voyage Covington became Darwin's technician and secretary in London. Covington left Darwin and emigrated to Australia in 1839. Darwin's analysis of his specimens led him to publish his theory of evolution in 1859.
