Van De Graaff to Present Annual Hinckley Lecture

OGDEN, Utah – Zoology professor Kent Van De Graaff, Weber State University's 2004 Hinckley Fellow, will discuss the similarities and differences between chimpanzees and humans Oct. 25 at 3 p.m. in Lind Lecture Hall 126.

The Hinckley Lecture Series, which began five years ago, is presented annually by WSU's Hinckley Fellow. The presenter chooses the topic based on personal interests or expertise.

The Hinckley Fellow is selected through the provost's office based upon outstanding teaching, service and scholarship at WSU. Both the award and lecture are made possible through a generous annual gift from the John S. Hinckley Family.

Van De Graaff's presentation, "Our Two Percent Uniqueness of Characteristics: Traits that Distinguish Us from Chimps," is free to the public.
