1863: CHARLES JOSEPH CHAMBERLAIN is born at Sullivan, Ohio.  Chamberlain will
study botany and zoology at Oberlin College, and after spending several years
as a school teacher and administrator he will enter the University of Chicago,
where in 1897 he will receive the first doctorate in botany awarded by that
institution.  Chamberlain will come to specialize in the study of cycads, and
will apply histological and cytological methods in an effort to understand
their evolutionary history.  His comprehensive work _Gymnosperms: Structure
and Evolution_ will appear in 1935, and over the course of his career he will
assemble in the botanical garden at Chicago the most comprehensive collection
of living cycads in the world.

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