Margo Wilson was a consummate scientist and an extraordinary person. In this short piece, the authors reflect on her qualities as a scholar and consider the nature of her legacy within the context of the three decades of work with her and Martin Daly, her personal and research partner. Within the broad context of the "sociology of knowledge," the authors focused on the production of the joint publication about the perpetration of intimate partner violence and examine the challenges and benefits of working collaboratively across disciplines.
