MSU Historian Michael Reidy leads an NSF-supported international project on 19th century scientist John Tyndall. Tyndal was one of the most influential scientists of the 19th century, a contemporary of Charles Darwin, Thomas Huxley, and Michael Faraday. The letters they sent each other touched on topics still debated today, such as the professionalization of science, government funding of science and the relationship between science and religion.
