Administrative HistoryLockhart's 'Apes and Ivory, Skulls and Roses' lecture appears to have looked at breeding and pedigrees, using examples and analogies from horticulture, human and animal development. A stand-alone lecture called 'Rhododendrons and Roses' appears to have developed from it, lavishly illustrated with flowering examples from Lockhart's own garden, as well as illustrations and photographs from books.
