Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Anthropological Society of Victoria was formed in 1934, in response to the efforts of gifted lecturer Frederic Wood Jones who attracted an enthusiastic non-academic audience to his public lectures in the 1930s. In 1976 it amalgamated with the Archaeological Society of Victoria to form the Archaeological and Anthropological Society of Victoria.Frederic Wood Jones (23 January 1879 – 29 September 1954) was a British observational naturalist, embryologist, anatomist and anthropologist, who spent considerable time in Australia. Jones was born in London, England and wrote extensively on early humans, including their arboreal adaptations (Arboreal Man), and was one of the founding fathers of the field of modern physical anthropology. A friend of Le Gros Clark, Wood Jones was also known for his controversial belief in the view that acquired traits could be inherited, and thus his opposition to Darwinism.
