Cleveland, Lucy, and Human Origins

October 25 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$12
Dr. Donald Johanson
Founding Director and Virginia M Ullman Chair in Human Origins, Arizona State University
In early 1975, the 3.2-million-year-old hominin fossil known as “Lucy” arrived in Cleveland, where she and hundreds of other fossils would spend the next five years. Dr. Donald Johanson’s lab at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History became a hotbed of activity as scientists traveled from all over the world to see the collection. Forty-five years later, Dr. Johanson will share his story of the excitement and controversy of the “golden age” of paleoanthropology.  He will reflect on Lucy’s role as ambassador to the past and her profound impact on the field of human origins.
