From the Archives to the Andes: Biographical Fieldwork Photos

I’ve spent the last five years on the trail of Ancel Keys, hunting for documents in archives around the globe; conducting interviews with the scientists, friends, and family who knew him; and even following Ancel Keys’ footsteps in the Chilean Andes. Here is a sampling of photographs from my fieldwork.
