Memories II by Julian Huxley( Book )

7 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first volume of his Memories, Sir Julian Huxley wrote of his life up to 1945, of his forebears, including the great Victorian naturalist and 'rebel', T.H. Huxley, of his own early work in biology, and of his increasing involvement in public life, as writer, broadcaster and 'energizer' in many fields. In Memories II, he takes up the story which what was probably his most important single appointment, as the first Director-General of Unesco. He describes with characteristic verve how this key agency of the United Nations came into being, how he helped but the 'S' in it, for Science, and how, in the aftermath of the war, its future course was thrashed out in high enthusiasm. Here, all Sir Julian's wide interests, all his capacity to stimulate others, found its fullest scope. The fact that today Unesco 'is not just talking; it is doing things that need doing' is the direct outcome of his clear vision of its humanizing role. Sir Julian's work has taken him all over the world. He is, as he happily admits, an inveterate traveller - but he is also, as appears from these pages, an engaging writer on travel. Whether he is observing rollers flying about the ruins of Ctesiphon or parrot-fish crunching up coral inside the Barrier Reef, his account is continually lit by his delight in the beautiful and the stange, both in nature and in man. Among the notable journeys he describes are the world tour he made after being awarded the Kalinga Prize, for promoting the spread of scientific knowledge, and some of his many visits to Africa, where he has been so closely concerned with conservation. As he writes of his long and full life, Sur Julian passes with natural candour from work to play, from places to people, and from honours to breakdowns; from arduous research to his brief encounter with Great Garbo, from Royal Society occasions to visits from his brother Aldous, with whom he had such close bond. These Memories are indeed those of an unusually complete and distinguished man. To be able to share them is a rare pleasuse. (Inside cover)
Memories by Julian Huxley( Book )

20 editions published between 1970 and 1978 in 3 languages and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world has had to wait a long time for this auto-biography, for not only is Sir Julian Huxley over eighty years old but he achieved fame half a century ago. Born into one of the most gifted families of the age, he has yet mafe the name more famous by utilising both the scientific and literary family traditions to increase scientific knowledge and understanding. He has greatly contributed to the popularisation of science through his activities in writing, education, game parks in Africa and nature conservation in England, at the London Zoo, and his work at Unesco. After introducing the reader to the previous two generations of his family, who include his father Leonard Huxley, editor of the Cornhill magazine, his grandfather T.H. Huxley, and Tom Arnold, a son of Dr. Arnold of Rugby, he describes his first experiences of observing nature. At the age of four on a walk with his nursemaid, he was fascinated to discover a huge toad hopping out of a hedge. "That comic toad," he says, "helped determine my career as a scientific naturalist." From Eton he gained a Biology scholarship to Balliol and, after winning a First Class Honours degree, started on his serious career as a biologist. Much of it is already well known, but in this book Sir Julian adds the personal touch to everything. We learn that he was by no means as confident as his early and brilliant succes would have led us to believe; he had emotional difficulties which his marriage only partly abated, for he continued to suffer from periodic depressions for many years. There is the touch of humour in describing his achievements, and his work alongside such figures as J.B.S. Haldane and H.G. Wells. Although driven by a passionate concern for scientific investigation, he nevertheless reveals his enduring enthusiasm for Africa's wild animals and Englands natural scenic beauties, in the filming of gannets in a Welsh island sanctuary, in writing a quiet poem in his tent during Spitsbergen's summer-long day. His scientific achievements can be studied in his work recorded in over forty books and numerous other publications; but Julian Huxley is not he most forthcoming of men, and this the first time he has revealed his innermost thoughts on science and life and religion and humanism.
