Papers, 1918-1984

These papers include correspondence, autobiographical data and writings, lectures, class notes, research data, material on scientific expeditions, unpublished manuscripts, slides and photographic prints, and diplomas and medals. The correspondence (36 linear ft.), including professional, administrative, and personal letters, covers all aspects of modern paleontology, as well as evolutionary synthesis, science and religion, and creationism. Simpson is often most forthright in defense of particular positions in science, and on social and political issues as well. In addition, there are approximately nine hundred letters (1938-1947) from Simpson to his wife, Anne Roe Simpson, written while he was serving with the American army in North Africa and Italy
