Born in Texas, he received his undergraduate degree from Stanford in 1972. While there, he went to Tanzania to study baboons with Jane Goodall at the Gombe Stream Research Centre, then completed his Ph.D. research on Gombe baboons at the University of Sussex. In 1990 he received a Guggenheim Fellowship, and in 2003 was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He is the author of Into Africa and more than a hundred scientific articles, most of which are about lions.
