Biographical History

Nikolaas (Niko) Tinbergen, one of the founding fathers of modern ethology, was born in The Hague on 15 April 1907. After secondary schooling in which he neglected the traditional academic subjects in favour of his sports and natural history interests, he spent a couple of months in the autumn of 1925 at the Rositten observatory in East Prussia which pioneered the scientific ringing of birds. This experience of biological fieldwork persuaded Tinbergen to enrol as a student at the University of Leiden where he specialised in zoology. In 1931 he was appointed 'assistent' in the Leiden Zoology Department and in 1932 he was awarded his PhD from Leiden for his homing studies on wasps of the genus Philanthus. Married in 1932 to Elizabeth Amelie Rutten, Tinbergen and his wife then spent two summers and a winter among the Anmagssalingmiut Eskimos of East Greenland studying the snow bunting, red-necked phalarope and husky. Returning to Leiden he taught experimental zoology and especially animal behaviour until 1949, by which time he was Professor and Head of Department. His career was interrupted during the Second World War when he was imprisoned as a hostage by the German occupation authorities.

During his time at Leiden Tinbergen developed laboratory work, in which the three-spined stickleback proved a particularly successful experimental animal, and field studies initiating projects on wasps, butterflies and hobbies at an annual camp which he organised for his students among the sandhills of Hulshorst. His work on the breeding behaviour of herring gulls also dates from this period and, like the stickleback research, became one of the classics of ethology. In 1936 Konrad Lorenz, who was later to share the Nobel Prize with Tinbergen and Karl von Frisch, visited Leiden. Lorenz and Tinbergen immediately recognised their common interests and Tinbergen spent the spring of 1937 working with Lorenz at the Lorenz family home at Altenberg, near Vienna. This association was to have the greatest importance for their science. In 1938 Tinbergen made his first attempt to introduce the ethological approach to animal behaviour studies to the English-speaking world on a visit to the USA. He pursued this mission with great dedication and success after the war.

As an essential step in this process Tinbergen resigned his professorship at Leiden in 1949 and accepted a less well paid and less prestigious lectureship in A. C. Hardy's department at Oxford, where he remained for the rest of his career. He was appointed Professor of Animal Behaviour in 1966 and retired in 1974. At Oxford he lectured with great success on animal behaviour to zoology and psychology students, and built up a research group that had a profound influence on the development of ethology round the world. In particular, his research focused on the adaptedness of behaviour. His work on the herring gull initiated in the Netherlands developed into comparative studies of many gull species. Tinbergen's most influential book The Study of Instinct, based on lectures given at the American Museum of Natural History in 1947, appeared in 1951 and Social Behaviour in Animals followed in 1953. In keeping with his aim of spreading the ethological message he made frequent visits abroad to attend conferences and also accepted the occasional one-term visiting professorship. Two of his best books were written for the educated layman, The herring gull's world (1953) and Curious naturalists (1958), and in the 1960s he devoted much effort to making scientific films. One of these, 'Signals for survival', made with Hugh Falkus, won the Italia prize for documentary television films.

In the 1960s Tinbergen became increasingly preoccupied with the implications of the ethological approach for man. One aspect of this was his support for the initiative of Hardy's successor, J. W. S. Pringle, to establish at Oxford a new honours course in "The Human Sciences". It is reflected also in the titles of his inaugural lecture as Professor of Animal Behaviour 'War and peace in animals and man' (1968), and of his Royal Society Croonian Lecture 'Functional ethology and the human sciences' (1972). Furthermore, Tinbergen was interested in science and society relationships and felt it was the duty of the scientist to draw attention to man's increasing disadaptation to his environment and to suggest ways in which he might be readapted. Tinbergen lectured on this topic on a number of occasions, but put aside a book on the subject unfinished to concentrate his energies in retirement on a more specific application of ethological methods to human behaviour. For over ten years Tinbergen and his wife collaborated on a study of the serious mental disorder childhood autism, publishing the results of their enquiry into its nature, ontogeny and treatment, 'Autistic' children - new hope for a cure, in 1983.

Tinbergen received many honours and awards in recognition of his contribution to ethology. In addition to the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine (1973), he received the Swammerdam Medal, awarded only every ten years, and honorary degrees from Edinburgh and Leicester. He was elected to the Fellowship of the Royal Society (1962) and to national academies in the Netherlands, Germany and the USA. Tinbergen died in Oxford in 1988.

Arrangement

Section A Biographical (MS. Eng. b. 2041; MS. Eng. c. 3125 - MS. Eng. c. 3129)

Section B Research (MS. Eng. c. 3130; MS. Eng. e. 2733 - MS. Eng. e. 2750)

Section C Lectures, publications and broadcasts (MS. Eng. c. 3131 - MS. Eng. c. 3143)

Section D Autism (MS. Eng. c. 3144 - MS. Eng. c. 3155)

Section E Correspondence (MS. Eng. c. 3156 - MS. Eng. c. 3158)

Scope and Content

The material is presented in the order given above. The collection includes important biographical material and records of Tinbergen's research, lectures and publications, and later interest in childhood autism. Only a small proportion of what must have been a very extensive general scientific correspondence survives, and there is virtually no material relating to visits and conferences or professional affiliations such as learned societies.

Section A, Biographical, is particularly noteworthy for Dutch material before Tinbergen's postwar move to Oxford. There are, for example, letters from East Prussia 1925, Greenland 1932-1933, Altenberg 1937, and the hostage camp 1942. The wartime internment is also represented by Tinbergen's portrait drawings of his fellow hostages. There is material relating to the 1973 Nobel Prize, including documentation of his use of the prize money to support research projects by others, and of his advocacy of the Alexander Technique in his Nobel Lecture. The section also includes the famous 1937 photograph of Lorenz with his family of goslings, the Dutch manuscript text and drawings for Tinbergen's children's story about Kliew the seagull (New York 1947 and the Netherlands 1948), and the drawings for his second children's story The Tale of John Stickle (London 1954).

Section B, Research, provides documentation of field observations and laboratory experiments in the Netherlands and England. The field notes, in notebooks and on loose pages, date from 1928, include observations of wasps, hobbies, gull species etc., and are characterised by Tinbergen's thumb-nail sketches of the subjects of his observations. The laboratory experiments relate to stickleback research.

Section C, Lectures, publications and broadcasts, is the largest in the collection. There are records of both Tinbergen's university teaching and public lectures. Although there are a few items from Leiden, almost all the material relates to Tinbergen's career at Oxford, and includes his contributions to the new Honour School of Human Sciences. There are drafts for scientific papers, illustrative material including photographs for Tinbergen's principal postwar books, and a little correspondence with publishers and editors. The drafts include some unpublished material, for example, the unfinished book on modern man's disadaptation with his environment. Most of the broadcasts material relates to television film documentaries including the Italia Prizewinner 'Signals for survival'.

Section D, Autism, provides very extensive documentation of Tinbergen and his wife Elisabeth's investigation of this serious mental disorder in children. There is correspondence 1970-1988 with ethologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists and others responsible for the care and treatment of autistic children, drafts of lectures, articles and especially the 1983 monograph, printed and duplicated background material, and case histories. (The four boxes of case histories are not available for consultation.)

Section E, Correspondence, is slight. Much of the correspondence dates from after Tinbergen's official retirement in 1974 and there are virtually no extended exchanges with colleagues.

The correspondence with Konrad Lorenz, Ernst Mayr, and Tinbergen's brother Jan, who was awarded the 1969 Nobel prize for economics, although disappointing in extent, is probably the most significant.

Acquisition

The papers were received from Professor Tinbergen's widow, Mrs. E. A. Tinbergen, in April and October 1989. Additionally, the typescript journal of the 1932-1933 Greenland expedition was received from Miss Janet Tinbergen, and the photograph of the March 1990 Tinbergen Legacy meeting in Oxford from Dr. Marian Dawkins.

After finishing High School Niko did not really know what he wanted to do, whether to train as a gym teacher or read biology at University.
A friend of his parents, Prof. Ehrenfest, advised his parents to send Niko for some months to the "Rossitten Vogelwarte" in what was then East Prussia, and to get acquainted with other trends in biology from those he was bored with.
Niko was then 18 and came back after 3 months completely convinced that that was what he wanted to do.

Note: The Vogelwarte Rossitten was the observatory at which the scientific ringing of birds was pioneered (R.A. Hinde, 'Nikolaas Tinbergen', Biographical Memoirs of Fellows of the Royal Society, 36, 550).

Scope and Content:

Human Aggression by Anthony Storr (Allen Lane, 1968), heavily annotated by Tinbergen.

C   Lectures, publications, and broadcasts

C.1   Lectures


Scope and Content:

There are records of both Tinbergen's university teaching and his invitation and public lectures. Almost all the university teaching material relates to Tinbergen's career at Oxford 1949-74, although there are a few duplicated items relating to earlier ethology practical work in the Leiden Zoological Laboratory. The Oxford material documents the animal behaviour courses he taught to zoology and psychology students, and, in a separate sequence, his contributions to the new Honour School of Human Sciences which admitted its first students in October 1970.

There is a chronological sequence of Tinbergen's invitation and public lectures 1955-1979, but this is by no means comprehensive even for the period covered and there are few fully prepared texts. The sequence can, however, be supplemented by a little material relating to Tinbergen's Oxford Inaugural Lecture March 1968 (MS. Eng. c. 3127/A.48) and German texts of a number of lectures prepared for publication in the 1970s (MS. Eng. c. 3139/C.152 - MS. Eng. c. 3139/C.160). There are, for example, the German texts of a lecture delivered by Tinbergen in Oxford 1946, and of his Royal Society Croonian Lecture 1972.

Arrangement:

Tinbergen's lectures material is presented as follows:

C.2   Publications


Scope and Content:

There are drafts of a number of Tinbergen's scientific papers, illustrative material and a little correspondence with publishers and editors. The drafts are arranged in a chronological sequence 1937-1980 (only 3 items before 1960) which is followed by a number of undated drafts and shorter publications such as press articles, reviews, obituaries. Of particular interest are the 1937 paper (MS. Eng. c. 3137/C.110) which is drafted on the back of instruction sheets for ethology practical work at Leiden, a paper on stickleback research (MS. Eng. c. 3137/C.111) which may not have been published, the preface and chapter plans for an unpublished book 'Bird City' (MS. Eng. c. 3138/C.133) and draft chapters, correspondence etc., for an unpublished book on modern man's disadaptation with his environment 'Man - Guinea Pig of Evolution' (MS. Eng. c. 3138/C.141-MS. Eng. c. 3138/C.146).

The illustrative material, principally photographs by Tinbergen and others and drawings and figures, relates to the books Tinbergen published after the move from Leiden to Oxford in 1949. Experimental models used by Tinbergen in his research on the Grayling butterfly were found with the illustrative material for The study of instinct, 1951 (MS. Eng. c. 3140/C.179).

A little correspondence with publishers and editors has been arranged in a chronological sequence 1959-1986. It includes material relating to the Dutch magazine De Levende Natuur for which Tinbergen wrote over many decades (MS. Eng. c. 3142/C.234).

D   Autism


Scope and Content:

Towards the end of Tinbergen's scientific career he became increasingly interested in human ethology. At this time he was approached by S.J. and C Hutt, then working at the Park Hospital for Children in Oxford, who asked for his help in their attempts to understand the serious mental disorder, early childhood autism. Tinbergen and his wife, who was very much an active partner and indeed initiator in this work, felt from their long experience of observing animal and human behaviour that autism 'was a deviation from normal behavior development that was quite clearly an exaggeration of normal, anxious, apprehensive "social avoidance behavior", which is such an easily recognizable (and very useful) component of normal childhood behavior'. Dewsbury, D.A. (ed) Leaders in the study of animal behavior, p.457. On his retirement in 1974 the Tinbergens collaborated on a decade long study of autism which, by the application of ethological methods to child behaviour, led to a new theory of its nature and ontogeny and ultimately to a therapy which they championed through a wide range of lectures, publications and personal contacts.
