Elwyn Simons, former director of the DLC and widely regarded as the founder of modern primate paleontology, has passed away at 85. Duke Today has this remembrance: http://today.duke.edu/2016/03/simonselwyn
Dr. Simons was a scientist-explorer in every sense, his work spanning continents and disciplines. The diversity of primates we house, living and fossil, and much of the success of the DLC today can be attributed to the tenacity and energy of Dr. Simons.
