Silly me, I thought it might be Darwin.

Nice to read that, as I'm a "student" of Mr. Lincoln. I've often thought he wasn't "human", but increasingly I see the man, but also an extraordinary humanity.


52 years on Earth and I've *never heard* that Lincoln and Darwin were born on the same day. You really do learn something new every day....


Ken White beat me to it, but there are 'classic' portraits here, too:



Heh, thought it was Darwin too.

I posted this on the original post, but again... this is a revelation.

I can't help but think Timothy Greenfield-Sanders when I see this. Single broad light, gray background, eyes into the camera. Somehow it's proof that the basics never go out of style.

I couldn't recall you ever posting a photograph of Darwin so I went for Lincoln. I didn't know they were born on the same day until now
