Science: UC biologist was unheralded pioneer

Science Magazine paid tribute to University of Cincinnati graduate and former professor Charles Henry Turner, who made significant contributions to science despite facing oppression and professional discrimination after the Civil War.

The Science profile said Turner’s keen insights into animal cognition did not receive the credit they deserved, which not only hurt Turner’s career but hindered science as well.

“The entire field of animal cognition may have developed differently,” the paper concluded.
