|Winter Park Institute visiting scholar Donald Johanson discusses human origin with Rollins anthropology students.|
On Wednesday, January 30, Winter Park Institute visiting scholar Donald shared how his discovery of the now famous skeleton named Lucy became the benchmark by which all future discoveries are judged. A capacity audience of Rollins community members in the Tiedtke Concert Hall was treated to photos and stories of Johanson's archaeological career, which enlightened those in attendance with insight on humanity's common origin and inherent interconnectedness.

Donald Johanson explains to audience members of his public presentation in the Tiedtke Concert Hall on Wednesday, January 30, how all species can be traced back to Africa.
"We are united by our past. Lucy reminds us of our connectedness to each other. I hope this insight will help humanity make informed decisions about the direction of the species as we move forward."
Donald Johanson signs copies of his book and chats with members of the Rollins community following his presentation on Wednesday, January 30.
"I can almost guarantee these students will make an indelible impression on the fields of anthropology and archaeology. It is a testament to Rollins faculty."
