Famous names associated with the museum have been the paleontologist and geologist Henry Fairfield Osborn (chairman for many years), the dinosaur hunter in the Gobi Desert, Roy Chapman Andrews (one of the inspirations for Indiana Jones), George Gaylord Simpson, biologist Ernst Mayr, the pioneers of cultural anthropologists, Margaret Mead and Franz Boas and ornithologist Robert Cushman Murphy.
