James Moore, historian of science at the Open University and the University of Cambridge and visiting scholar at Harvard University, is noted as the author of several biographies of Charles Darwin. He was born March 13 1947 and brought up in a fundamentalist family in Chicago with the idea that Charles Darwin was an enemy of God. He came to the UK as a Marshall Scholar studying at the University of Manchester. As a Cambridge research scholar and a member of the teaching staff at the Open University, he has studied and written about Darwin since the 1970s, co-authoring with Adrian Desmond the major biography Darwin, and also writing The Darwin Legend, The Post Darwin Controversies, and many articles and reviews.

Moore worked on the documentary series The Mark Steel Lectures, but due to conflicts ended up having his name taken off the program.[1]
