Webster University faculty and staff highlights offers a roundup of recent Webster faculty and staff activity and achievements.
Kleinman Honors Mentor at International Society for the History, Philosophy, and Social
Studies of Biology Conference
Kim Kleinman, retiring director of undergraduate advising, participated as part of
a panel honoring Garland Allen at a plenary session of the International Society for the History, Philosophy, and Social Studies of Biology biennial meeting in Toronto, Canada, on July 10. Allen posthumously received the
Society's distinguished David Hull Prize at the session.
Allen, a professor in Washington University's Biology Department, was a foundational figure in the history of biology. Though widely influential and a mentor to generations of historians, his only official graduate student was Kleinman.
In addition to participating in this session, Kleinman has written a notice about Allen in the History of Science Society Newsletter and has an essay on his friend and mentor in a forthcoming issue of the Journal of the History of Biology.
