An interesting pairing. I know about the Daltons But did Darwin have a gang?

Heh. You might be aware that many streets in Alcoa are named after scientists, probably because it was planned by engineers working at Alcoa. (There are a couple named after poets, too, not sure how they slipped in there).

Many of the names are familiar, such as Darwin, Curie, Joule, Kelvin, Edison, Nobel, etc. I had to look up Dalton, though. Turns out he was the inventor of atomic theory.

A list of Alcoa street name origins is here:
