James Bell Pettigrew (1834 -1908) was author of a well-known 19th century treatise on "Design in Nature," which was a real classic in this field. Even though Pettigrew allowed for evolution, He amassed a tremendous amount of evidence for design. He was one of the outstanding anatomists and physiologists of the 19th century, serving as president of the Royal Medical Society and authoring over 15 significant volumes in his disciplines.
