Remembering Stephen Jay Gould

On Monday, paleontologist and popular author Stephen Jay Gould died at the age of 60 at his home in New York. Gould died of metastasized lung cancer, according to a Harvard University statement. When he was 42, he had faced a different cancer, abdominal mesothelioma, which he fought off with experimental treatments. The Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology at Harvard, Gould also taught geology and the history of science. He was a prolific writer and producer of scientific ideas, many that challenged theories about the mechanisms by which life has evolved and continues to evolve. "When the history of our discipline is written, he will be seen as a major juncture point. That's true whether you agree or disagree with him," says Warren Allmon, a paleontologist at Cornell University, director of the Paleontological Research Institution, and one of Gould's graduate students during the 1980s. Thirty years ago, Gould and colleague Niles Eldredge, now a curator in the Division of Paleontology at the American Museum of Natural History, publicized the theory of punctuated equilibrium: that evolutionary changes happen in dramatic spurts separated by long periods of stasis. "Thirty years ago, we didn't believe in catastrophes, we didn't believe in sudden evolutionary change. We thought everything was slow and gradual. We don't think that way anymore," Allmon says. "What we teach students now we never would have taught them 30 years ago. … He was part of the nexus of all that."

... The Rediscovery of Imperialism
by John Bellamy Foster
Lynne Stewart Interviewed by Susie Day Early this year, Stephen Gould developed lung cancer, which spread so quickly that there was no hope of survival. He died on May 20, 2002, at the age of sixty. Twenty years ago, he had escaped death from mesothelioma, induced, we all supposed, by some exposure to asbestos. Although his cure was complete, he never lost the consciousness of his mortality and gave the impression, at least to his friends, of an almost cheerful acceptance of the inevitable. Having survived one cancer that was probably the consequence of an environmental poison, he succumbed to another.

He was a pudgy man, even as a 20-something, and the quintessential geek I never saw him without a shirt pocket crammed full of cheap plastic pens. The first time I met him, he came to a party in my freshman dorm; famous faculty members didn't do that sort of thing. But in those days, he was just a rising star, new to the faculty, but on the charts with a bullet. I knew as much about paleontology as I do about Urdu, but Stephen Jay Gould was more than willing to try to lead me out of invincible ignorance, in a conversation that ranged from rocks and fossils to the depredations of Richard Nixon. I was not one of his thousand closest friends; I was not one of his ten thousand closest friends. Except for a brief encounter on a Manhattan sidewalk a few years ago, I had hardly seen him at all since I left college. But I never lost sight of the fact that Steve Gould was as close to the perfect public citizen as anyone who ever entered my life.

Stephen Gould
Stephen Gould was born on September 10, 1941 in New York City. He received an A.B. in 1963 from Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio. He then went to Graduate School in Evolutionary Biology and Paleontology at Columbia University . On October 3, 1965, he married Deborah Lee. In 1966, he became a Professor of Geology at Antioch College. The next year, he finished his doctoral work, earning a degree from Columbia. He also took an Assistant Professorship position at Harvard University . In 1971, he became an Associate Professor and in 1973, a Professor of Geology. Gould was one of the founders of the Punctuated Equilibrium School of Evolution. His most famous argument for punctuated equilibrium is the panda's "thumb." This is a modification of the wrist bone that allows the panda to strip leaves from bamboo shoots which Gould argued must have occurred all at once or it would not have been preserved by natural selection. He is best known for his regular column, "This View of Life," (since 1974) in Natural History magazine.

When five-year-old Stephen Jay Gould first marveled at the towering Tyrannosaurus skeleton in the American Museum of Natural History, he decided to spend his life studying fossils. Although few children in Queens, New York, shared his early fascination for evolution, he never considered any other career but paleontology. Now professor at Harvard University and curator of its Museum of Comparative Zoology, Gould attended Antioch College, then returned to Manhattan, for graduate work in paleontology at Columbia University. For his doctoral thesis he investigated variation and evolution in an obscure Burmudian land snail, anchoring his later theorizing in intense scrutiny of a single group of organisms, as Darwin had done with Barnacles.
