mourning Binford

Last SAAs he was looking frail. This SAAs, he was conspicuously absent. Now word comes that he has died. Through the rules of academic fictive kinship, he was my grandfather (my advisor's advisor). Whether you agreed with him or not (and he certainly had his personal flaws), he had a great influence on the field. I lectured this morning on his impact on the study of human evolution.
