John Stevens Henslow is known for his formative influence on Charles Darwin, who described their meeting as the one event "which influenced my career more than any other". As Professor of Botany at Cambridge University, Henslow was Darwin's teacher and eventual life-long friend, but what of the man himself? In this new biography, much previously unpublished material has been carefully sifted and selected to produce a rounded picture of a remarkable philanthropist of the Georgian and Early Victorian periods who made a lasting contribution to the University and to the education system of his day.
