Congratulations to Alicia Valentino…

On Friday (08/25/06) the successful defense of her dissertation on the industrial archaeology of Van Winkle’s Mill made Alicia Valentino the FIRST Ph.D. in anthropology produced by the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. Alicia’s committee included Drs. George Sabo (chair), Kenneth Kvamme, Thomas Green, and Leslie “Skip” Stewart-Abernathy. I was there as were several other friends and colleagues to show support to Dr. Valentino and to witness a moment of history….granted, it was a small moment of history, but it was certainly one that had been decades in the making.

Drs. Stewart-Abernathy, Tom Green, Ken Kvamme, and George Sabo (standing) await the beginning of Alicia's (standing in black dress) defense.
