The grandson of Thomas Huxley and brother of Aldous Huxley, Julian was educated at Eton College and Balliol College, Oxford where he developed an interest in zoology. He graduated with honors in 1909 and spent a year in Italy at the Napls Marine Biological Station. On his return to England he began working as a demonstrator at Oxford University. In 1912, he was invited to set up a Department of Biology at Rice University in Texas, but before he took up the position he had a nervous breakdown and spent some time in a nursing home. He went to America the following year and produced a paper on the Great Crested Grebe which was hailed as a landmark in avian ethnology. He returned to England in 1916 and worked for British Army Intelligence Corps, spending some time in Italy. Following the war, he became a Fellow at New College, Oxford and was appointed senior demonstrator in the Department of Zoology. He married Juliette Baillot in 1919 and the couple would have two sons. Obviously suffering from bipolar disorder, Huxley suffered from breakdowns throughout his life. In 1925, he became Professor of Zoology at King's College, London. He resigned in 1927 to works with H.G. Wells and his son on the monumental Science of Life series, a collection of nine books in three volumes describing all aspects of biology and which were published in 1929 and 1930. During the 1930's, Huxley traveled extensively, spending time in the USSR, Kenya and other East African states and most of Europe. In 1935, he became secretary of the Zoological Society of London and ran the society and the London and Whipsnade zoos until 1941, when he was invited on a lecture tour in the USA. He returned to England in 1943 to join the Colonial Commission on Higher Education, but while in Africa developed hepatitis and had another breakdown which sidelined im for a full year. In 1946, he joined the recently formed UNESCO as its first Director-General and spent two years in Paris.During the 1950's and 1960's Huxley was a prolific author and activist and was awarded the Darwin Medal of the Royal Society in 1956, the Darwin-Wallace Medal by the Linnaean Society in 1958 and later that same year was knighted. In 1961, he cofounded the World Wildlife Fund for Nature. His many works include The Individual in the Animal Kingdom (1912), Essays of a Biologist (1923), Religion Without Revelation (1927), Ants (1930), A Scientist Among the Soviets (1932), The Beginnings of Life (1938), Evolution: The Modern Synthesis (1942), Soviet Genetics and World Science (1949), Evolution in Action (1953), New Bottles for New Wine (1957), The Human Crisis (1963) and Memoirs (1973).
