1876: KARL ERNST VON BAER dies at Dorpat (now Tartu), Estonia.  Though he will
be best remembered for his work on embryology conducted while a professor at
the University of Konigsberg, von Baer ranged widely through natural history
and related fields.  Moving from Konigsberg to St. Petersburg in 1834, he held
various offices in the Russian Academy of Sciences, and contributed to the
founding of the Russian Geographical Society and the Russian Entomological
Society.  In addition to his many publications in comparative anatomy and
embryology, von Baer wrote extensively on anthropological, ethnographic,
and even archeological subjects, such as the manufacture of bronze and the
itinerary of Odysseus.

Today in the Historical Sciences is a feature of Darwin-L, an international
discussion group on the history and theory of the historical sciences.  For
