Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains materials from the papers of George W. Hunter, a biology professor and textbook author active in the early part of the twentieth century. Items include questionnaires, correspondence, and reports regarding school health education curricula. Hunter held many teaching positions, and is probably best known for writing "Civic Biology: Presented in Problems," the 1914 biology textbook which figured into the infamous Scopes "Monkey" trial of 1925 due to its inclusion of teachings on evolution. Later in life, Hunter taught classes at Pomona College and lectured at Claremont Graduate University.
