Character description

C. Loring Brace (born 1930; Charles Loring Brace IV) is an anthropologist at the University of Michigan. He considers the attempt "to introduce a Darwinian outlook into biological anthropology" to be his greatest contribution to the field of anthropology.

His iconclastic paper "The Fate of the 'Classic' Neanderthals: a Consideration of Hominid Catastrophism" created a furor and made the fate of the Neandertals a major issue in the 1960s.
