Editorial Board and Conditions of Use

This site is edited and maintained by Gavan Tredoux. To contact the editor, send email with [Galton] in the subject line to an address which you must compose yourself, from my first initial prepended to my lastname, suffixed with that venerable gmail domain. Something like psmith@gmail.com, only that's not it. You can do it.

All material provided on this site is made available in good faith for educational and scholarly purposes only. This site is not run for financial profit, never has been and never will be. Please address any queries to the editor.

The intention of the editor is to make everything that Galton wrote available here, usually in facsimile format. If you are able to provide material by Galton, even if only in hard-copy form, that is not already available here, please contact the editor. Many of the sources of Galton material are extremely difficult to access, even in major research libraries.

The site now runs to some 2 gigabytes of digitized material and is considered complete, though minor updates may be added where new discoveries are made. Effort long ago shifted to producing a major new biography of Galton, which will be released shortly.

Anything provided here may be redistributed or reused freely provided that credit is given to this site.
