Honoring F. Clark Howell

UC Berkeley has put up a display honoring the work of F. Clark Howell, the "dean of African paleoanthropologists," who passed away last year. The article in Paleontology News notes:

"The most critical element to me in doing the project was to honor the memory of Clark Howell for inspiring generations of Berkeley students and for his lasting impact on the field of paleoanthropology," [Tim] White said. In 1970, Howell founded a laboratory that became the Human Evolution Research Center, which White now directs.
