Developing: The University will announce later today that the renowned primatologist and conservationist Jane Goodall will move her archives to Duke. She has scheduled a visit to campus March 28.
(Earlier versions of this story included an error transmitted by the AP, that Goodall was moving an institute she runs at USC)
Fact Checker has learned that Goodall will speak in Page, and that tickets were supposed to go on sale today (Thursday)
Her address will be entitled "Gombe and Beyond: The Next 50 Years." She will review her work for the past half century and reflect on its meaning. And she will outline "the role we must all play over the next 50 years to ensure a better future for generations to come."
A book signing will follow the speech.
Around 2 PM Duke spokesman Karl Bates told the San Francisco Chronicle that the archive on chimpanzees that Goodall gathered during decades of work in Tanzania is being moved to the Durham campus. They are not at USC, but at the University of Minnesota.
It will be under the direction of Anne E. Pusey, recruited a year ago to be chair of Evolutionary Anthropology, who seems to have played a key role in this coup. Pusey collaborated with Goodall in Tanzania and previously managed the archives from her post at Minnesota.
