Randal Keynes

Republished from our old site’s ‘information’ pages

foo Randal Keynes is Charles Darwin’s great-great-grandson and a member of the Charles Darwin Foundation for the Galapagos. He is the author of the much praised “Darwin, His Daughter and Human Evolution”, an exploration of family life in the Darwin household, the effect on Darwin of the death of his ten-year-old daughter Annie, and his thinking about the origins of human nature. Randal found Annie’s writing case when he was sorting through family documents. In it were Darwin’s daily notes on her illness which show in haunting detail how he cared for her in the months before she died.

Randal is also a great nephew of the economist John Maynard Keynes. He lives and works in London.
