Pulitzer Winner Lecturing at Alabama for 2 Days
A renowned biologist and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner is lecturing the next two days at the University of Alabama.
Alabama graduate and Mobile native E.O. Wilson will be serving as a scholar-in-residence at the university in Tuscaloosa.
Wilson is best known for his study of small life forms including ants. He will speak on "The Social Conquest of Earth" on Tuesday night, and then address students during a convocation on Wednesday.
On Monday, Wilson was the keynote speaker at an awards luncheon for the Alabama Humanities Foundation.
Wilson has been named one of the 25 most influential people by Time Magazine.
