Anthropology Insider - Spring 2007

Erica Chambers, Editor | Dr. Jeff McKee, Faculty Advisor

Editor's Corner

Hi all,

I just want to take a moment to thank you all for your contributions to the Anthropology Insider, including write-ups and photographs. Without your help, I would have never been able to put this newsletter together. I would like to give special thanks to Karen Royce and Jean Whipple for their assistance and training.

This will be my last quarter as Editor of the Anthropology Insider. As of next fall, Gabriela Jakubowska will be the new editor. It has been a pleasure creating the Insider. I have enjoyed your contributions and finding creative ways to document what is going on in our department.

Thank you,
