In a discussion by learned scholars about traditional gender-specific child rearing roles in our society, one of the panelists referred to the work of Margaret Mead, and the studies that she made of sex and temperament in primitive societies. Having had the privilege to literally sit at the feet of Margaret Mead half a century ago in Chicago, william imagines that wherever she is now, she must be smiling that some of her work has withstood the test of time.
