MEDIA REVIEWS

"In addition to being a superb scientist, Wald was a marvellous teacher, lecturer, and writer. TIME magazine's 300 Biographical Memoirs named him 'one of the ten best teachers in the country' in a cover story published in 1966. He wrote and lectured on a wide variety of topics from the 'Origin of Life' and 'Life and Mind in the Universe' to political issues. The Vietnam War horrified him and, beginning in the mid-1960s until shortly before his death, he was deeply involved in anti-war and anti-nuclear activities. He considered his political actions as part of being a biologist: one who is concerned with life." - John Dowling, Biologist, Professor Emeritus at Harvard University, and author of Creating Mind: How the Brain Works
