Much Like Man's
Lew Lehr notwithstanding,
monkeys are apparently no craz
ier than hunrian beings.
Studies made over the past sev
eral years at Monkey Island, off
the east coast of Puerto Rico, by
Dr. Ray Carpenter of the psy
chology department reveal that
the social behaviour of our pri
mate cousins offers excellent in
dications of certain fundamental
fixations underlying the social be
haviour of man.
Back in 1936 Dr. Carpenter con
ceived the idea of founding .a col
ony of free ranging monkeys un

in order to add to a man's knowl
!edge about , this nearest cousins
in the animal world from the
standpoint of social conduct.
His project supported by the.
School. of Tropical Medicine, an
autonomous unit of the University
of Puerto Ricb operating under
the direction of Columbia Univer
sity, Dr. Carpenter in 1938 trap
ped more than 400 rhesus monk
eys in India and released them on
37-acre Santiago Island, thereby
giving the island a new name.
With the monkeys practically in,
sole possession of the island, they
may be studied in their native
habitat. Several of the
cant observations Dr. Carpenter
has made on their. social behav
iour - follow:
1. The nationalistic behaviour
of human beings, who tend to
settle on a piece of land and will
thereafter defend . it with their
lives, is reflected . in the natural
behavior of monkeys.
Today the monkeys on Santiago
Island are divided territorially
into six groups, although when
they were brought from India they
were complete strangers to one an
other, having been trapped over
an area of several lcundred square
