    During Don Campbell's lifetime, I never used the name of Campbell. Instead, after our 1983 marriage, I continued using the name acquired after my first marriage, long before one's surname became a feminist issue. I did this chiefly because Frankel had been my professional name for a number of years by the time we met. Moreover, Don often spoke of his longtime custom of advising his female graduate students to keep their maiden names when they married. (“Given the high rate of divorce among psychologists, I warned them that they could find themselves saddled professionally with the surname of a person they no longer even liked,” he would say, then he'd add, with a twinkle: “None of them took my advice, and all of those to whom I gave that advice have stayed married!”) But, the strongest reason for eschewing the Campbell name was, I must now confess, a perverse pride: I didn't want to trade on his renown in any way. All this points to the fact that it was not simple marrying a man whose fame was so great.

    But what a joy it was! He was not merely a famous man, but a great one, a true original whose value and role in the intellectual world were unique and irreplaceable. (I can say that, because I had nothing to do with his success, which was achieved long before we met.) One reason, at least, was not hard to discern: Donald T. Campbell was, quite simply, the best academic I have ever encountered—and I have encountered quite a few.

    During the 15 years we were together, I had ample opportunity to contemplate the qualities that made him that. It was not sheer brilliance, though he was indeed, as one admirer said, “the last of the polymaths.” Nor was it drive and ambition, though he certainly had plenty of those qualities, as well. It was not his creativity or his enormous capacity for work, though he was well above the norms in those regards (even though he complained of needing more sleep than most people and insisted he had never been able to work long hours). It was not even his immense talent for collaboration with other scholars. It was all these things in magical combination with special qualities of personality and character that made Don one of the few major figures in any field—perhaps the only one—who seems to have had no enemies, even among longtime intellectual adversaries.

    Intellectual disagreements were never rancorous, but always friendly, treated as opportunities to learn from another's work. Indeed, sometimes Don was said to “suffer fools gladly”—and, oddly, this was consistent not only with his kindly disposition but also with his fallibilist epistemology, which taught him that all of us are fools, and that you never know where a good idea might come from. Thus, in his teaching, he gave only three grades: A, B, or Incomplete, for his faith in everyone's capacity to learn and contribute was limitless.

    Chip Reichard wrote (in one of Don's many obituaries) that he wondered whether there was anyone Don ever met that he did not encourage. I, having seen him in action more times than I can count, have wondered the same thing. He had a great gift for finding what was positive and original in the work of others, and letting them know how much he valued it. More than one discouraged scholar carried on through years of adversity because of Don's help and support, and if they faltered at last and abandoned the struggle, he mourned the loss to the intellectual world. He wanted everyone to love that world as he did, and his influence on students was nothing short of seductive in many cases.

    Early in his life, Don Campbell decided to be a scientist and an intellectual, though what sort of intellectual he did not discover until later. To him, no other life could possibly have been as rewarding or as noble as the life of the mind. He used to joke wryly that he was lucky to have stumbled into academe, because he surely would have been a failure had he tried to earn a living at anything else. I doubted that proposition the first time I heard it, and my subsequent years of watching assured me that his talents as a diplomat and a salesman would have earned him a living anywhere. Still, he believed it, and his generosity was such that he wished everyone in the world could share his pleasure in the intellectual enterprise.

    Since Don's death in 1996, I have had letters and messages from many people whose lives he had touched in some way. Each of them is special, a touching tribute to the love people felt for Don in return for the love he gave. That is not so very surprising: What really astounded me was to learn of the enormous variety of intellectual projects and interests my husband had engaged in over his 50-year career, many of which I learned of only after his death. Now, after 15 years as both colleague and wife, after the innumerable meetings we attended together the world over, and after reading substantial portions (though not nearly all) of his immense scholarly output, I am still learning about interests he shared, even projects he had undertaken, often with people whose names were unfamiliar.

    I cannot say that I had no idea that Don had contact with specialists in studies of organizations. It seemed to me peripheral to what I knew he was actively involved in, but I do remember a meeting in New York City several years ago, one that was organized by Joel Baum. (I went to New York with Don, but not to the meeting, I confess. Don had told me it was about management, a field in which I regard myself as a hopeless case.) What I didn't suspect, though, was that Donald T. Campbell's influence on the field of organization science merited a volume in his memory. I am sure he would be grateful, and as always a little surprised, to learn that so distinguished a group of colleagues has accorded him this honor.

    On occasions such as this one, Don used to elaborate his thesis that the more honors one has received, the more of them one is likely to receive in the future. With each honorary degree or award, he would say, with the self-deprecating twinkle he showed on such occasions, that here was another case of “autocorrelated error.” On the other hand, his was the only C.V. I've ever seen that had a section titled “Books Dedicated to Me,” and despite the many other honors he received, that list was the achievement of which he was proudest. I know, therefore, that the present volume would please and gratify him, and I thank the editors, and whoever else is responsible, for honoring his memory in the way he valued most.

    Shortly after his death in 1996, we confessed to each other the great influence Don Campbell had had on each of us.

    Bill first met Don—in print—in 1965 when Don's “Variation and Selective Retention in Socio-Cultural Evolution” appeared in a book titled Social Change in Developing Areas. At this time, Bill was a PhD student at MIT studying personal, group, organizational, and social change and Third World industrial development. Bill's first draft of anything evolutionary appeared in 1970 and led more than a decade later to an enthusiastic selectionist theory application to organizational growth and survival, competition grouping, and dominant competence as elements in the creation of organizational species—all summarized in Bill's book, Organizational Systematics (1982). Although the book ostensibly was about organizational taxonomy, the required development of a theory of speciation based on selectionist evolutionary theory brought Bill, accompanied by Howard Aldrich, face to face with Don in 1980, not long after he had moved to the Maxwell School at Syracuse University. Their conversation dwelt mainly on the “evolution of evolution” in the study of organizations and in teasing out the genetic algorithm connecting Amos Hawley, Armen Alchian, and Don to early contributors and to students of organizational evolution such as Sid Winter, Herbert Kaufman, Jack Hirshleifer, Karl Weick, Howard Aldrich, Jerry Salancik, Mike Hannan, John Freeman, Marion Blute, and, eventually, Bill.

    Joel first encountered Don in 1988 while a PhD student at the University of Toronto. Don quickly became excited about Joel's dissertation (itself inspired by Bill's Organizational Systematics), and they began to correspond, keeping each other informed about their ideas on organizational evolution. When Joel began plans with Jitendra Singh for their 1992 conference on organizational evolution in New York City, Don was the first invited, along with Jim March, as a “pioneer” in the field of organizational evolution. After writing his organizational whole-part competition essay for that conference, Don encouraged Joel to work with him on fleshing out the significance of that phenomenon. Although they never did work together on it, Joel's chapter in this volume pursues that question directly.

    We also lamented the failure in organization science to acknowledge its intellectual debt to Don and wondered what we could do to begin a correction. We quickly decided that, whatever we did, we should not do it alone. We decided to organize a conference and to publish its proceedings to celebrate, examine, and build Don's legacy. We were thrilled by the enthusiasm of everyone we approached about our plans. One of our earliest supporters was Jerry Salancik—a Campbell student himself—who quickly committed himself to the project a short time before his death. Three others who supported and influenced the volume you are holding, but, for one good reason or another, are not represented directly in it are Rebecca Henderson, Anjali Sastri, and Karl Weick. Barbara Frankel Campbell, at a difficult time in her own life, promptly compiled and provided us with a detailed record of Don's publications and achievements, enabling us all to explore his intellectual legacy more thoroughly. We also owe a debt of gratitude to all the conference and volume participants, who carefully read, debated, and commented on one another's work, completed thoughtful revisions (often several), and generally met (and kept quiet about) the fast-paced deadlines we set.

    The conference itself, held November 7–9, 1997, at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto, was made possible by generous grants from Paul Halpern, Interim Dean of the Rotman School, and John Mamer, Interim Dean of UCLA's Anderson Graduate School of Management. We are most grateful to them for their financial support of the conference, and also to the universities that sponsored their faculty members' travel to the conference. Finally, thanks to Harry Briggs and Sage Publications for supporting our vision and allowing us to present it to you.
