An Unusual Collaboration

An Unusual Collaboration

(p.88) 9 An Unusual Collaboration
On Her Own Terms

Barbara R. Stein

University of California Press

This chapter examines the unusual collaboration that existed between Alexander and Grinnell. Despite being one of the leading evolutionary biologists of his day, Grinnell's deference towards Alexander is considered extraordinary. However, it was his willingness to take direction from Alexander that was a key factor in the success of their project. The obvious respect they had for each other, coupled with their commitment to a shared vision, were also key to overcoming the difficulties that arose as the museum developed and its reputation grew. Aside from focusing on the close relationship these two shared, the chapter reviews Alexander's insecurities and some of her published works.
