William Graves compiled this series of correspondence on the teaching of evolution in public schools from letters he received in 1999 while governor of Kansas. The letters are responding to an April 1999 decision by the Kansas State Board of Education to remove evolution from Kansas teaching standards. Out of the hundreds of letters Graves' office received on this topic, he destroyed all but thirty. Copies of related articles and editorials from The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, U.S. News and World Report, and the Oregonian sent with the correspondence have not been included here due to copyright restrictions.
