Saturday, March 10 at 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PST
by Dr. William F. Schmachtenberg (Dae Miami SL)
"Stephen Jay Gould was undoubtedly one of the most influential scientists of the 20th Century who along with Niles Eldredge published the theory of Punctuated Equilibrium. He was a prolific author of many articles on Neoteny, and other ideas that revolutionized biologists ideas of evolution. I had the fortune to attend several of his lectures as well as interview him at Harvard University before his untimely death in 2002. I will be sharing my personal reflections on this great scientist as well as sharing unpublished correspondence with Dr. Gould."
