PhD majored in Literature and Philosophy at Boston University. He joined the founding faculty at Hampshire College in 1969, where he is Professor Emeritus of Biology. He lectures around the world and organizes research on animal behaviour, especially the behaviour of canines. Ray’s first professional studies of dogs occurred on the runners of a dog sled. His research projects with sled dogs include responses of racing dogs to the stress of heat retention, and the amounts of energy required to pull sled and driver. Ray (and his colleagues and students) have published over fifty papers on his dog research. His latest dog book, co-authored with Lorna Coppinger, is “Dogs: A startling new understanding of canine origin, behavior, and evolution”. It has been translated into eight languages, recently also in Italian.
