Speaker: Dr Katrina Dean, British Library

Accounts addressing the recent history of British evolutionary science have not yet fully benefited from research using archives held at British Library, including the papers of John Maynard Smith FRS. This talk offers an overview of the John Maynard Smith archive, which primarily contains correspondence, original research records and offprint collections. I'll explain how the archive is structured and what work is being undertaken to make it accessible to researchers, and mention some of the challenges.
