He did not know how to drive. So I was White's driver; I drove him back and forth between Ann Arbor and took him everywhere in Chicago at the Darwin Centennial. What did they do for the Darwin Centennial? Oh, my God. For the centennial, Chicago brought every person ever heard of including Darwin's offspring, [Thomas] Huxley, et * See Sol Tax (editor), Evolution after Darwin: The University of Chicago Centennial (1960) for the papers presented during the centennial celebration.

I read it and discussed it during the time that I was a graduate student, I guess. He was at University of Illinois-Urbana. When his book came out, Leslie was all over it.
