A month before his 101st birthday, Claude Levi-Strauss, one of the most influential anthropologists, died at the age of 100. He died over the weekend, according to the office of the president of the School for the Advanced Studies in Social Sciences, in Paris, Bloomberg reports.

His death saddens the hearts of all Anthropologists worldwide. I am an undergraduate student of University of Cape Coast, Ghana, West Africa, aspiring to be an anthropologist in future. May his soul rest in perfect peace.
