Abstract

Devra Kleiman, December 1997. Jessie Cohen, Smithsonian's National Zoo, Washington, DC, USA. As a long‐standing friend and colleague of Devra Kleiman, I greatly value this opportunity to acknowledge a personal debt for her inspiration, guidance, support and friendship. It is no exaggeration to say that since our first meeting in London over four decades ago, Devra's example and philosophy exerted a major and extensive influence on my own interest in primatology. Devra Kleiman was a pioneer in conservation biology and following the news of her death at the age of 67, Dietz ( ) wrote ‘Throughout her 40‐year career, Devra Kleiman used innovative scientific approaches to address conservation issues and consistently modeled the collaborative processes that are critical for effective actions’. Devra graduated in 1964 with a BS in Biopsychology from the University of Chicago, IL, USA, and received her PhD in Zoology in 1969 from the University of London, UK, having worked with Dr Desmond Morris at the Zoological Society of London. From 1969 to 1971 she served as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Rutgers University, NJ, USA, before taking up the position of Reproductive Scientist at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park, Washington,
