Charles Robert Darwin (1809-1882)
Widely regarded as the scientist most associated with the theory of evolution through natural selection, this English naturalist wrote his masterwork, The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection (1859) years after completing his five-year voyage as naturalist aboard HMS Beagle. Although he was not the originator of the theory of evolution, his work was the first to gain widespread acceptance from the experts of his day. Darwin was buried in Westminster Abbey.
