Letter to James Cossar Ewart from Frank Challice Constable, 16 July 1902

 Item
Identifier: Coll-14/9/8/59

Scope and Contents

Constable writes concerning the contents of a letter he had sent to Nature relating to the possible connection between the time of copulation of human parents and the sex of the resulting offspring. In an attempt to prove that environmental rather than genital distinctions more greatly influence the gender of a person, he goes on to cite the example of a woman, brought up as a man, and who, to all intents and purposes, showed the distinguishing characteristics of a man.
