E.C. Krupp

Born in Chicago, E.C. Krupp studies archaeoastronomy, or how ancient civilizations perceived the sky. He is the director of the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, where he seeks to make sure modern civilizations appreciate the heavens too. A 1979 New Scientist profile of him said, “As he talks, gesticulating constantly, you realize that Krupp was almost certainly a squirrel in his last life…gathering nuts of knowledge, shucking off shells hither and thither, munching with tremendous enthusiasm and sideways glances on some kernels, salting others away. Then he scampers to the next tree, just the sort of animal that children stop to watch in the woods.”
