Samuel Wilberforce. Portrait of Samuel Wilberforce (1805-73), Bishop of Oxford and one of the British opponents of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. Wilberforce argued against T.H. Huxley in a debate about evolution at a meeting of the British Association in 1860. Wilberforce asked Huxley if he traced his descent from the apes through his father or mother. Huxley replied that he would rather be descended from an ape than from an educated man who would introduce such a remark to a serious scientific discussion (meaning Wilberforce) and so won the debate. Photographed by Charles Dodgson (better known as the author Lewis Carroll) in 1860.
