The Dawn Races of Early Man

The Early Lemur Types  •  The Dawn Mammals  •  The Mid-Mammals  •  The Primates  •  The First Human Beings  •  Evolution of the Human Mind  •  Recognition as an Inhabited World

ABOUT one million years ago the immediate ancestors of mankind made their appearance by three successive and sudden mutations stemming from early stock of the lemur type of placental mammal. The dominant factors of these early lemurs were derived from the western or later American group of the evolving life plasm. But before establishing the direct line of human ancestry, this strain was reinforced by contributions from the central life implantation evolved in Africa. The eastern life group contributed little or nothing to the actual production of the human species.
