American anthropologist who made the remarkable discovery of hominid fossil remains in Ethiopia, remains which challenged prevailing views on human evolution. The discovery took place on 11/30/1974 at noon, when he found a 3.5 million year old, 3'6" female skeleton that was 40% complete. He named the skeleton Lucy and wrote, "Lucy, the Beginnings Of Humankind," 1981.
