Jane Goodall Education

Goodall is known for her study of chimpanzee social and family life. She started studying the Kasakela chimpanzee community in Gombe Stream National Park, Tanzania, in 1960. Without collegiate training directing her research, she observed things that strict scientific doctrines may have overlooked.

Jane Goodall Family

Goodall was born to businessman Mortimer Herbert Morris-Goodall and Margaret Myfanwe Joseph, a novelist from Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire, who wrote under the name Vanne Morris-Goodall. As a child, as an alternative to a teddy bear, Her father gave her a stuffed chimpanzee named Jubilee, and she has said her fondness for this figure started her early love of animals, commenting that “My mother’s friends were horrified by this toy, thinking it would frighten me and give me nightmares.” Today, Jubilee still sits on Goodall’s dresser in London.

She has a younger sister, Judith, who she shares the same birthday; the two were born four years apart.

Jane Goodall Husband

Goodall on 28 March 1964 was married to a Dutch nobleman, wildlife photographer Baron Hugo van Lawick, at Chelsea Old Church, London, and became known during their marriage as Baroness Jane van Lawick-Goodall. The pair had a son, Hugo Eric Louis; they divorced in 1974.

The following year, she got married to Derek Bryceson (a member of Tanzania’s parliament and the director of that country’s national parks); he later died of cancer in October 1980. With his position in the Tanzanian government as head of the country’s national park system, Bryceson was able to protect Goodall’s research project and implement an embargo on tourism at Gombe.

Jane Goodall Son

Three years after their marriage, their son, Hugo Eric Louis van Lawick, was born. They fondly called their son “Grub.” When Grub was around seven, his parents divorced in 1974. Goodall remained friends with her ex-husband until his death in 2002. Grub spent his early childhood with his parents in the African wild before he was sent to England to study.

In 2010, van Lawick appeared in the biopic, Jane’s Journey. He spoke about growing up as Dr. Goodall’s son and the conflicts he had with his mother, who devoted herself to her research. Van Lawick describes the personal cost of his mother’s “obsession” with her work in Jane’s Journey. But at the end of it, Goodall, Grub, and his children present a happy picture. The mother and son duo help each other out in their wildlife conservation projects.
