1996 June 26 - 1996 September 29
"Scientists and Journalists: One Story, Two Voices: A Century of Science Reporting in The New York Times" was one of four exhibitions organized by New York City cultural institutions to mark the 100th anniversary of the purchase of The New York Times by Adolph S. Ochs. The exhibit explored the relationship between scientific research and its presentation in the media. More than one dozen critical finds were documented through fossil casts and archival materials displayed alongside news clippings from The New York Times. On display for the first time were casts of 4.1 million-year-old fossils that provided the earliest direct evidence for upright walking by any member of the human family. This previously unknown species was named Australopithecus anamensis by Meave Leakey. Other highlights included exhibits about the discoveries of the Lascaux cave paintings and of the early hominid specimen "Lucy." The exhibit was on view outside the Hall of Human Biology and Evolution on the first floor of the American Museum of Natural History from June 26 through September 29, 1996.
