Wrong Cambridge?

Janet Browne, whose two volume biography of Charles Darwin is by far the best to date, has been named professor of the history of science in Harvard University's Faculty of Arts and Sciences , effective Sept. 1, 2006. She has taught at University College, London, for most of the last 25 years and has been professor in the history of biology there since 2002.

Browne's Darwin biographies have been described by various reviewers as "magisterial," "monumental," "dazzling," "definitive," "brilliant," and a "masterpiece."

They were good, too.
