Hereditary genius.London: Macmillan, 1869.
Galton investigated the families of great men and suggested that genius was hereditary, and thus founded the science of Eugenics, although he did not coin the word until 1883 (see No. 230). Karl Pearson’s, The life, letters and labours of Francis Galton, 3 vols. in 4, Cambridge, 1914-30, is one of the most remarkable biographies ever published on a scientist.
