My Biography

My first teaching experience was one year (a/y 1967-1968) as an instructor at Springfield College in Massachusetts, followed by 48 years at California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, California, from which I retired in 2010 (between 2010 and 2016 I was a paid annuitant in anthropology). My main interests in our discipline have been human ecology, comparative law, psychological anthropology, and forensic anthropology. Field research included work in San Pedro Village, Ambergris Caye, British Honduras (economic/ecological study); Utila, The Bay Islands of Honduras (remittance economics); Grand Cayman Island (emigration); and Cuba (oral history collecting). I also served for 15 years as an unpaid consultant on the Bay Islands for the Cayman Islands National Archive. Post retirement study has been on the Hawaiian Islands of Kauai, Maui, and Oahu (restoration and refurbishment of native plant and animal life), resulting thus far in two conference presentations.
