The MCZ is saddened to say that MCZ Faculty governing board memember, Robert (Bobby) Goelet, passed away earlier this month at the age of 96. To say that Bobby led a very full life doesn't come close to capturing all that he did and experienced. After graduating from Harvard in 1945 with an A.B. in history, Bobby was a champion for natural history research, collections, and conservation. Among the many distinguished appointments he held, in addition to the MCZ Faculty, was Chair of the Board of Trustees of the American Museum of Natural History.
