One of the friends I’m visiting in Boston is Andrew Berry, who teaches evolutionary biology at Harvard. You may recall that Berry, whose other passion is mountaineering, placed a copy of WEIT atop Mount Darwin in California.
Berry has recently posted an account of his mountaineering homage to Charles Darwin: a combined climbing/backpacking expedition with another evolutionist. The team ascended Mounts Darwin, Wallace, and Lamarck in the Sierra Nevada. His account includes interesting information on how these mountains got their names (others in the range include Mounts Huxley, Spencer, and Mendel). Berry is unenthusiastic about the suggestion (seriously) that another peak in the range be named Mount (Stephen Jay) Gould; he favors Mount [R. A.] Fisher instead.
