Cesare Emiliani proposed the HE Calendar Reform Idea and died a few years after his proposal. He was the Italian-American scientist who founded Paleo Oceanography and Project "LOCO" (Long Cores) at the U.S. National Science Foundation. He wanted a calendar system with dates fair to all people, without bias based on color, sex, country, beliefs, or sensibility. The University of Miami Ricther Library houses Emiliani's archives.
