.Scopes, John Thomas
[?-?] Teacher. Participated in a scheme to put the town of Dayton, Tennessee on the map, to wit: violate the recently passed Butler Act, and have the ACLU test of the constitutionality of the act tried in the Rhea County courthouse. Scopes asserted that he had taught about evolution from a newly proscribed biology textbook, and was charged. The rest, as they say, is history. In 1925, the case of the State of Tennessee vs. John T. Scopes was tried. The defense was not allowed to produce witnesses. Statements from experts on biology were read into the record, but in the absence of the jury. A common SciCre claim is that "Nebraska Man" was prominently featured in expert testimony. However, several readings of the relevant sections of the transcript have convinced me that no mention of Nebraska man was made. Scopes was found guilty and charged $100. The plan to continue the constitutional test was derailed when review found that the amount of the fine exceeded the limit where the jury did not specify the fine, and the charge was thrown out. The Butler Act prohibiting the teaching of evolution in Tennessee remained on the books until 1968. See also William Jennings Bryan and Clarence Darrow. The case "inspired" the movie, "Inherit The Wind".
