Two collections of letters, written to and by Charles Darwin.

The main group of letters is the Darwin-Burdon-Sanderson Letters – 1873-1881. This collection was part of a purchase of books and manuscripts from Dr Hugh Sinclair, lecturer in physiology and biochemistry, Magdalen College, Oxford in 1966. This group of about 40 letters consists of correspondence between Charles Robert Darwin (1809-1882) and John Scott Burdon Sanderson (1828 – 1905) during the years from 1873-1881.

The letters deal with the research Darwin and Burdon Sanderson did on the digestive powers and leaf movements of insect-eating plants, notably Drosera and Dionaea. Darwin published the results of this research as part of his Insectivorous Plants (1875).
The second group of letters is part of the Fox/Pearce (Darwin) Collection – 1821-1884. This group of approximately 80 items was acquired in 1970 from Captain Christopher Pearce, a descendant of the Fox family.

New York City education officials are developing more than a dozen new standardized tests, but their main purpose will be to grade teachers, not the students who take them.
