Back in Berlin after a phenomenal, whirlwind tour of California (first time in over a decade) where I was lucky enough to hook up with a few CdeP grads making the world a better place.

David Laylin ’55

I continue participating in scientific exchange programs with Iran. Aside from the direct benefits – to both countries – this is important “Track Two” diplomacy, at a time when the US and Iran badly need some. In July, I was the only American ecologist at the international SDS (sand and dust storm) Conference in Tehran […]
