1800 Thomas Jefferson Portrait Featured Sloths Image

1800 Thomas Jefferson Portrait

Thomas Jefferson, polymath, American Founding Father and President (b. 13 April 1743 - d. 4 July 1826). Engraving by W.Holl in "The Gallery of Portraits" 1837 with later colouring, after print by Desnoyers and painting by Peale 1800. His chief contribution to science came in paleontology, describing the American Mastodon and in 1797 the first fossil of the giant ground sloth Megalonyx jeffersonii from West Virginia. Megalonyx means "giant claw" (see Leidy 1855). Cuvier credited the discovery and illustrated it in his 1812 "Ossamens fossiles". Buffon had been dismissive of the American fauna as feeble and Jefferson was happy to counter the claim with fossils such as these. Jefferson also contributed to the sciences as an inventor and archaeologist. He founded the University of Virginia

1804 Megatherium Cuvier Plate

Copperplate, art by Laurilliard, engraving by Couet, (from Bru), Plate 1 in Cuvier's account in "Annales du Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle" 1804, Vol. 4, No 29. Cuvier's reputation with fossils began with this animal to which he gave the latin name Megatherium americanum (Big American Mammal). The creature had been found in Argentina near Buenos Aires in 1787 (Darwin would make similar discoveries on the Beagle) and was sent to Madrid. It was mounted by Juan Bautista Bru and put on display. Cuvier wrote his description secondhand from drawings and a description sent by Bru. Cuvier realised it bore a resemblance to the much smaller tree sloth. He proposed Megatherium was a giant ground sloth. As such a big animal would have been seen if it were alive, Cuvier suggested must be extinct. Until that time most fossils were assumed to be of creatures still alive somewhere on the globe
