That's George A. Bartholomew, my intellectual role model. Elected member of the National Academy of Sciences and inspiring, if low-key, teacher of ecologically relevant physiology (his favored term). I was privileged to know him during my years at UCLA (his last few there), and I believe I was the last PhD student to have Bart on my committee. You can read about his many scientific accomplishments here, marvel at his academic genealogy (I'm on there!!!) here, and read his UC obituary here.
