Worrying About Evolution
Owen Gingrich, Author

During a fateful period in 1923-24 Goshen College was closed as a consequence of a struggle within the Mennonite Church that can be identified as between conservative and liberal ideas. Goshen College was considered to be too liberal. A result was the removal of certain offending volumes from the college library and a shunning of ideas such as Darwinian evolution. Owen Gingerich, Professor Emeritus of Astronomy and of the History of Science at Harvard University and a senior astronomer emeritus at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, relates this in the beginning of his lectures and introduces the primary protagonists in the national struggle for the mind of American biology: Louis Agassiz and Asa Gray of Harvard.
