Haldane (1892-1964) was one of the most outstanding scientists of the twentieth
century. He came from one of the best-known intellectual families of Britain,
the members of which, over several generations, have authored several hundreds
of books on a wide variety of subjects. Haldane's collection of books and
reprints was gifted to RRL - the Regional Research Laboratory (now IICT). When CCMB
was carved out of IICT the collection was transferred to CCMB.
The Haldane Collection is a treasure of 4,000 books and 17,000 reprints.
The books include one signed by Charles Darwin.
