We are delighted to announce that our friend and colleague (now emeritus), Roberto Frisancho was honored with the 2013 Charles R. Darwin Lifetime Achievement Award at the American Association of Physical Anthropologists (AAPA) Meetings in April.  

Roberto is the fifth biological anthropologist from the University of Michigan to receive our field's most prestigious award, joining previous honorees C. Loring Brace, Stanley M. Garn, Frank B. Livingstone, and Milford H. Wolpoff. In addition, Roberto joins his mentors Paul T. Baker & Stanley M. Garn as the only scholars to be honored with lifetime achievement awards from both the AAPA (the Charles Darwin Award) and the Human Biology Association (the Franz Boas Award).
