Daily Lives and Professional Expectations

(p.103) Chapter Ten Daily Lives and Professional Expectations
Leopold's Shack and Ricketts's Lab

If Aldo Leopold and Edward F. Ricketts had ever shared the same shack (in fact, they never met and were probably unaware of each other's existence), there would have been every chance that at any particular point in the day, someone would have been awake. Neither slept much. Ricketts was so unusual in part because of the fact that the humanities—art, music, literature, and philosophy—were as much a part of his life as the natural sciences. There were differences between Leopold and Ricketts in their daily lives and professional expectations. During the final two decades of his life Leopold was a university professor, salaried and tenured, with graduate students and an undergraduate teaching load that included courses in his field of wildlife ecology. Ricketts was a serious, haggard small businessman. He gathered, processed, packaged, and sold biological specimens to high schools, colleges, and universities.

Keywords:   Aldo Leopold, Edward F. Ricketts, humanities, natural sciences, wildlife ecology, businessman, university professor
