Issues in science writing
Clarence Darrow had some help from reporters for a fledgling science news service in his defense of John Thomas Scopes, who was on trial for teaching evolution. Kimbra Cutlip writes: "Watson Davis took charge of lining up expert witnesses for the defense. On his train ride from Washington to Dayton, he telegraphed a list of scientists to Darrow and his defense team instructing them to invite the scientists to testify. He also took it upon himself to send the invitations."
