Abstract:

This collection includes correspondence, diaries, photographs and other types of material on the family of William Bateson, British biologist and geneticist. It gives interesting insights into British social life during the first three decades of the twentieth century, with glimpses as well into Bateson's milieu and a patriarchial scientific family in Britain.

Although there is genealogical material and a few letters from William's father, William Henry Bateson, as well as material about Mary Bateson (historian), the bulk of the collection is correspondence between William, Catharine Beatrice Durham Bateson, and their three sons: John, Martin, and Gregory. The raising and schooling of the boys, their parents' advice and concerns, their investigations in botany and zoology, and their occasional assistance in their father's research, as well as the tragic deaths of John one month before armistice in October 1918 and Martin, who committed suicide in 1922, is all part of this correspondence.
