June 16, 2010

Q: I am looking for an early illustration entitled “The Ascent of Man” or some such depicting all of the races and ethnicities as a taxonomic family tree. I recall it was the centerfold for that early 70’s issue.

A: It was a piece called “Schlockly Theory: Evolutionary Development in the Primate Order” from the January 1974 (Animals) issue.
