While the heart is one of the most important organs in our bodies, we sometimes forget to give it love. In fact, according to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death for men, women, and people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States. An estimated 47 percent of Americans suffer from high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and/or smoke cigarettes, which, as we know, is bad for your heart.
Known for his expertise in ecology and evolutionary biology, Professor Henry Horn was also quite creative in other fields. He sang in the Chapel Choir and created artwork as a hobby.

After Horn died unexpectedly last March, it seemed fitting to distribute his works.

A few years ago, English professor Anne Cheng ’85 was visiting a Hello Kitty store in Pittsburgh when she noticed that those around her seemed enamored with the merchandise. Again and again, she heard people describe the character as cute.

That moment would inspire a Princeton course titled “Too Cute!

Although he became renowned for his big ideas as an architecture and design scholar and curator, his sister, Barbara Urbach Lissner, recalls the smaller moments, such as how he always found the perfect place to hang a new picture in her home. “He was very generous in his observations and in his thinking,” she says.
