Darwin Dates - 1st July 1858

Exactly 150 years ago today, on July 1st in 1858, Charles Darwin's and Alfred Russel Wallace's joint paper, On the Tendency of Species to Form Varieties, and on the Perpetuation of Varieties and Species by Natural Means of Selection was read at a meeting of the Linnean Society of London.
