Jane Goodall Born April 3, 1934 (She is 76 now). She lives in the United Kingdom. After graduating from high school, Jane went to secretarial school and then had a series of jobs at Oxford University and for a film studio that made documentary films. Jane had wanted to go to Africa since she was a child, so when an old friend from school invited Jane to visit her in Kenya, Jane eagerly accepted.
Dr Dame Jane Goodall was a debutante dabbling in secretarial work when she suddenly moved to Africa to study chimpanzees. Goodall was married twice. On 28 March 1964 she married aristocratic wildlife photographer Baron Hugo van Lawick at Chelsea Old Church, London, becoming Baroness Jane van Lawick-Goodall. The couple had a son, Hugo Eric Louis, affectionately known as 'Grub', who was born in 1967. They divorced in 1974. In 1975 she married Derek Bryceson (a member of Tanzania's parliament and the director of that country's national parks) and they remained married until his death in 1980.
Jane Goodall attributes her dedication and insight to her work and her mission in life to her mother, internationally known author, Vanne Goodall. In 1985, Jane Goodall's twenty-five years of anthropological and conservation research was published, helping us all to better understand the relationship between all creatures. She has now devoted over thirty years to her mission.

B.F. Skinner Born March 20, 1904(1904-03-20)Susquehanna, Pennsylvania Died August 18, 1990 (aged 86)Cambridge, Massachusetts The Behavior of Organisms (1938), Beyond Freedom and Dignity (1971) and the novel Walden Two (1948).
B. F. Skinner was one of the most influential of American psychologists. A radical behaviorist, he developed the theory of operant conditioning -- the idea that behavior is determined by its consequences, be they reinforcements or punishments, which make it more or less likely that the behavior will occur again.
Academic Psychology construes itself as a science. Science, by definition, is that aspect of philosophy that eschews all talk of Spirit and God, for those cannot be verified as true. Skinner wrote: “I was taught to fear God, the police, and what people will think. As a result, I usually do what I have to do with no great struggle.” He conducted pioneering work on experimental psychology and advocated behaviorism, which seeks to understand behavior as a function of environmental histories of reinforcement.
On August 18, 1990 Skinner died and was buried at the Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Massachusetts. He left behind many distinctive awards and achievements. In 1968 he was awarded the National Medal of Science, in 1971 he was honored with the Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. Foundation Award, and in 1985 was given the Albert Einstein School award for excellence in psychiatry.
