New Leeuwenhoek Web Site!

Good news for all Leeuwenhoek students and those interested in the science of The Netherland’s Golden Age. Douglas Anderson has produced a new web site called Lens on Leeuwenhoek.

Why a web site dedicated to Antoni van Leeuwenhoek? From the introduction page:

When I began researching the life and accomplishments of Antony van Leeuwenhoek, I was struck by:

bulletthe small amount of information
bulletthe amount of contradictory information

Why wasn’t there more information about this fascinating, important man? What are the correct facts about his life and accomplishments? This web site tries to respond to both questions by presenting:

bulletattractive, interesting information
bulletcorrect information

This promises to be the most comprehensive web site on Leeuwenhoek available today. Douglas Anderson is an associate professor of humanities at Medaille College,  New York. I look forward to visiting this site a great deal in the future. There is little I can say that would not be better understood than by simple visiting Lens on Leeuwenhoek!

I consider  this a very exciting development and I wish Professor Anderson and his web site great success in the forthcoming years.
