Jane Goodall and her 50-year data archive come to Duke University

World-renowned primatologist and conservationist Jane Goodall, Ph.D., DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace, is visiting Duke University today. While on the Durham, N.C., campus, she will formally announce the relocation of the Gombe data archive to Duke.

According to a press release issued by Duke University, “While the archive is owned by the Jane Goodall Institute of Arlington, Va., it has recently been relocated to Duke, which has established a new research center to house and manage the archive. Anne Pusey, chair of evolutionary anthropology at the university, will run the project, which will be known as the Jane Goodall Institute Research Center at Duke. Maureen P. Smith, president of the Jane Goodall Institute-U.S., was instrumental in negotiating the archive move.”

Later today, Dr. Goodall will also present a public lecture at 4 p.m. in Page Auditorium.
