Wagner schools alumni : President Jim Wagner greets Pamela Pryor (‘69C, ‘70G), a member of Emory’s Board of Governors, following a town hall meeting at the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead on Oct. 30 (see story, page 4). Wagner addressed several hundred alumni, administrators and students and discussed his vision for Emory. ”We want people to come to Emory to build their careers, not just stay for a couple years and move on,” he said. “We should have compelling excellence in all the things we do, be they anthropology or cancer research.” Click here or above for the full story.

Frans de Waal, Charles Howard Candler Professor of Psychology and director of Yerkes' Living Links Center, has released My Family Album: Thirty Years of Primate Photography, a new book from the University of California Press that pulls together his decades of photographing apes and monkeys. The handsome 170-page volume explores the visual evidence of just how similar nonhuman primates can be to their more “civilized” cousins, as shown by the shot above, titled “The Appearance of Thinking.” “We love to present the human philosopher the way Auguste Rodin did in The Thinker,” de Waal writes. ”Kevin, an adolescent male bonobo, seems to be thinking equally hard, perhaps about what distinguishes bonobos from other animals."
