Stephen Jay Gould (d. 20 May 2002) was an American paleontologist, evolutionary biologist, and historian of science. He was one of the most influential and widely read authors of popular science of his generation. Gould spent most of his career teaching at Harvard University and working at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. In 1996, Gould was hired as the Vincent Astor Visiting Research Professor of Biology at New York University, where he divided his time teaching there and at Harvard. Gould was known by the general public mainly for his 300 popular essays in Natural History magazine, and his numerous books written for both the specialist and non-specialist. In April 2000, the US Library of Congress named him a "Living Legend." I Have Landed (2002) is the 10th and final volume of collected essays by Gould. The title refers to the very first words his grandfather Papa Joe wrote on arrival at Ellis Island, New York as a Hungarian immigrant, on 11 Sep 1901. (Wikipedia)
