URGENT: Help fund an Alfred Russel Wallace statue!

For the centenary of Alfred Russel Wallace’s death (1913), the Wallace Memorial Fund wishes to commission a life-sized statue of Wallace for the Natural History Museum, London. They need to raise £50,000 by January 31st. Last I heard they were £30,000 short, so they really could use some more donations!

  1. Thanks very much for doing this Michael. The Fund is indeed £30,000 short and it will be rather sad if Sir David Attenborough just has a bust of Wallace to unveil on the anniversary of ARW’s death (7th November 2013), rather than a life-size statue to match those the Museum has of Darwin, Huxley and Owen.
