description:

According to the September 25, 1906 issue of the Indiana Daily Student, page 1:4, the Biological Field Station had, during the summer of 1906, several visiting scientists give lectures. The article reads, in part: "...Registration began at noon, Saturday, June twenty-first...Dr. Eigenmann, of the Department of Zoology, was the director of work in all classes...The regular routine of lectures was frequently broken in order that the classes might listen to lectures of visiting scientists...Of such lectures the most important was by Hugo DeVories [sic], professor of Biology in the University of Amsterdam. Prof. DeVories [sic] is considered the foremost champion of Evolution in the world to-day. His theory of Mutation, which has years of experiments back of it, is one of deep interest to men of the scientific world to-day... Dr. John M. Coulter, former president of Indiana University and now professor of Biology in the University of Chicago, delivered two lectures before the assembled classes."
