These are scans of papers in my personal reprint library that have been crucial for some of my work in evolutionary theory, or that of others. They were published before the digital age, and are difficult to obtain. I have cited them in my own publications, so for those wishing to pursue these citations, I provide them here for scholary use (apologies for the underlining and notes).

A Corrigendum: I had typed the title into my BibTeX file as “Classification of Selection-Migration Structures and Conditions for a Protected Polymorphism” (instead of “Classifications”), and did not realize the error until several publications had already come out with it. But, as a Google Scholar search will affirm, I am in good company among those who have mutated the title thus. Hopefully, those looking for the paper under that title will find this page. The mutation constitutes a polymorphism at a frequency of 115/(289+ 115)= 0.28 (Google, as of Oct. 2011) or 27/(57+27)=0.32 (Google Scholar). The mutation was de novo in my case, since Sam himself had given me the reprint. But other cases might be replications within the citation chain. It might make an interesting evolutionary bibliographic study.

It was through this report that I learned that there was a whole European “school” with interest in the evolution of evolvability and the problem I called “knowledge representation in the genome”. I found it when I was doing my initial literature search in 1982 on what if anything had been done in this field. Here I learned of the work of Rupert Riedl and Günter Wagner, which would lead to our collaboration.
Here is an intriguing essay by my late cousin, Prof. Harry Austryn Wolfson, the Nathan Littauer Professor of Hebrew Literature and Philosophy at Harvard, previously unavailable online:
Wolfson, Harry A. 1925. How the Jews will reclaim Jesus. Introductory Essay to Jesus as Others Saw Him: A Retrospect A.D. 54, by Joseph Jacobs, Bernard G. Richards Co., New York, 1925.
“Throughout the history of religious controversies
between Christians and Jews in the Middle Ages
Christianity was on the defensive. The Christians
considered themselves called upon to prove the claims
they made on behalf of Jesus by endeavouring to
show that the vague prophetic promises were all
fulfilled in Christ. The Jews had no counter claims
to make; they simply refused to be impressed.”
“The sayings of Jesus ... will be considered as part
of the maxims of the anonymous body of the wise,
of blessed memory, who express the national genius
of the people, not as those of an inspired individual
to be worshipped and exalted above all others.”
