Illinois ConnectionI lived in Chicago from 1955 to 1958 while earning a Ph. D in anthropology at the Unviersity of Chicago. In 1960 I moved to Collinsville after becoming a professor of anthropology at Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville. I still reside in Collinsville.
Biographical and Professional InformationMy dissertation research was among the Dakota Indians and I continued research among Indians. In retirement I am writing fiction about Southwestern Indians, but my first novel was about the prehistory of Cahokia Mounds since I live less than a mile from the site. The novel views ancient Cahokia through the eyes of a young woman brought to the site as a servant wife and for her knowledge of languages. The title of the novel is ''JOURNEY TO THE SUN''. I have a non-fiction work for the young reader, ''ANCIENT SPLENDOR OF PREHISTORIC CAHOKIA''.
