Washington University, the St. Louis Zoo and the Missouri Botanical Garden are launching a new partnership to bolster their collective conservation efforts, and our very own Jonathan Losos, Class of 1980, will lead the program.

The Living Earth Collaborative is undertaking the goal of slowing down and halting the extinction of plants and animals by sharing research among the three entities.

Jonathan received his tenure at Washington University before moving on to continue his research at Harvard.

As the Post-Dispatch reported, “Losos — who is also a popular author — has been touted as the kind of rare scientist who can translate complex biodiversity science to laymen and policy leaders.”

PROTZEL, ED (1964) — Ladue Alumnus Ed Protzel's sequel to his darkly ironic historical series, DarkHorse Trilogy, will be released and in stores on Feb. 2, 2018, by TouchPoint Press. Honor Among Outcasts offers a glimpse into a time and place that pit neighbor against neighbor in America’s most bloody conflict—the Missouri-Kansas border war of 1863.

As much morality tale as history lesson, Honor Among Outcasts weighs the bonds of friendship and loyalty against personal risk, using actual events such as Quantrill’s raid on Lawrence, Kansas, and the Union army’s infamous Order No. 11.

In addition, Protzel's futuristic thriller, The Antiquities Dealer, was just acquired by the same publisher and will be released next year.

Protzel, of University City and a graduate of Ladue Horton Watkins High School, Class of ’64, has completed three novels, five original screenplays for feature film and developed scripts/projects for 20th Century Fox. The first book in his DarkHorse Trilogy, The Lies That Bind, was his first published work; the trilogy will conclude with Something in Madness. He holds a master’s in English literature/creative writing from the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

PASSANANTE, JOY (1965) — Ladue Schools graduate Joy Cathey Passanante signed and discussed her new book on Tuesday, Oct. 17, with fellow St. Louisans.

Joy's book, "Through a Long Absence: Words from My Father’s Wars", is set against the backdrop of World War II and is the saga of a wartime medical unit, a passionate long-distance love, the making of a surgeon, and two first-generation American families. Told through her father’s eyes—drawing on hundreds of his letters to his beloved wife, his four-volume wartime diary, and his paintings—Joy masterfully recreates his wartime journey and physically retraces his steps more than sixty years later in an attempt to understand a time in her parents’ lives that they’d spoken about very little.

“This intimate and epic portrait of a father from a daughter is both an act of love and of memory, lost and miraculously found. It’s absorbing and affecting in every detail." —Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Check out the pictures from the event below!

Congratulations, Joy!

"Ken graduated in 1981 from Washington University with a degree in business. In college he excelled as a scholar-athlete. He was a member of Phi Delta Theta. Ken was a linebacker for the Battling Bears, and he served as a member of the Thirteen Committee, an honor bestowed on only 13 juniors each year. After college, he worked in Mobile, Alabama, and Fresno, California, before moving back to St. Louis. Ken faced HIV/AIDS illness with grace and strength. He is forever missed and forever in our hearts. May his memory be a blessing."
