Samuel Jackson Holmes (1868-1964) was a professor of zoology at UC Berkeley for many year, and an early California eugenicist, part of the movement that eventually sterilized thousands of Californians in the name of societal betterment. Though there are not many annotations the entries are detailed and the whole work lends to an understanding of this bizarre period in American history. Very scarce.
