Local News Story on Matthew Carrano


New Haven Register, January 5, 2003

A few snippets:

On May 1, Carrano will become curator of the Smithsonian Institution's
world-renowned dinosaur collection at the National Museum of Natural History
in Washington. It's the brontosaurus of paleontology jobs.

As one of only about 600 paleontologists in the nation...

He plans to institute a research program at the museum to help people
recognize that there is more to dinosaurs than "Jurassic Park," which
mistakenly portrayed the Tyrannosaurus Rex as agile.

Thought everyone already knew the Tyrant was slow and clumsy.
