Roots...Shoots...and Rhizomes spreading...

I much enjoyed my visit to the Albert Schweitzer Institute at Quinnipiac University, pictured above, and its conference on Schweitzer's legacy last weekend. Jane Goodall keynoted, and brought out a throng of 1500 to a Friday night address. My talk was on Schweitzer's legacy for educational theory and practice, from a book I am in the midst of writing.

The conference presenters were put up near Yale, so great walking tours amidst Gothic buildings were in order too. Here is Harkness Tower in brilliant early morning sunshine.

It was great to see Rhena Schweitzer Miller again (the only child of Albert and Helene Schweitzer), as well as other like minded people.
