    Hmm, On the Origin of Species was published in the 1850s, so that lets out Jefferson. Perhaps one of our most religious prez’s who was also a scholar (Woodrow Wilson)?

    When I think of presidential libraries, I think of Jefferson first. From your description, my guess would be “Isn’t that all of them?” From the picture, though, the shelving is probably a bigger clue than the book covers and titles.

    I can see I have to give out another hint.

    Hint: his library is only a half-day’s drive from me here in Waterloo, Ontario.

          Admittedly, I got some of my winning guess by reading the guesses by DonDueed@7. But if I’m to be paid a reward, how about making it a promise by you to post some more about which notion of information, Shannon information or algorithmic complexity, or even the Orgel/Szostak specified information, is appropriate to thinking about the information built into living things in the process of evolution? I’ll happily contribute to such a discussion.
