Edward O. Wilson 1929-2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edward O. Wilson on December 26th. He was 92. Professor Wilson was called "Darwin's natural heir," and was known as "the ant man" for his pioneering work in entomology. He authored over 30 books, twice receiving a Pulitzer Prize along with many other distinguished awards during his six decades at Harvard. He was a pillar of our community and an inspiration to many. He will be greatly missed.
