My favorite evolution stuff 2. Charles Darwin Tobacco Card

In honor of Charlie D. I am posting one of my favorite Darwin items.  I got this from Ebay years ago.  It is a Darwin card – about 3 x 5 cm.  From Ogden’s Cigarettes, much like baseball cards.

Also see my previous “Favorite Darwin thing” – a post card from 1900 or so. 

Author: Jonathan Eisen

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis

  1. Dr. Eisen,

    That is so cool that you can find Chas. Darwin memorabelia. I think it would be really special to find a Darwin autographed calling card. A Darin fan and microbiologist, I started a blog about Darwin and evolution @
    You might be interested in my entry “How can evolution inform us about predicting extraterrestrial intelligence.”
