This website was produced with the goal of introducing students, scholars, and casual readers to the controversy over the teaching of evolution in North Carolina in the 1920s. The site will give users the opportunity to view key primary sources that describe many of the significant issues and events regarding the evolution controversy. Then, as now, this was a topic that produced strong feelings on both sides of the debate. We have made an effort to select sources that reflect all viewpoints, and encourage users to explore all of the materials on the site. Please contact the North Carolina Collection at email@example.com with your thoughts and suggestions.
This website was written, designed, and encoded by staff members of the University Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2006. Most of the materials featured on the site are drawn from the collections in Wilson Library, the special collections library at UNC-Chapel Hill.
