ASA GRAY. Check from the Boston Society of Natural History endorsed by botanist Asa Gray, whose research provided crucial support for Charles Darwin's theory of evolution, in 1884 Check endorsed "Asa Gray" and signed by the Treasurer of the Boston Society of Natural History.

Check no. 1122 for $19.20, made out to "Prof Asa Gray" and drawn on Soceity's account at the Shawmut National Bank. Gray (1810-1888) was an American botanist whose discovery of close affinities between East Asian and North American floras was a key piece of evidence in favor of evolution. A professor of natural history at Harvard University (1842-1888) who created Harvard's Department of Botany in 1842, he offered his collections to Harvard in 1864, founding the Herbarium of Harvard University, which became known as Gray's Herbarium. Lightly toned and creased. Normal cancellation holes, which touch handwriting but not signature and bank stamps. Signature shows through on front and touches handwriting. Folded four times and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
