Dr. Romero publishes article in
Journal of Spelean History
Dr. Aldemaro Romero, Biology, recently published an article
in the Journal of Spelean History. This periodical is published by
the American Spelean History Association. This organization is, in
turn, part of the National Speleological Society, the world's
largest society aimed at studying caves. Romero's article, "The
discovery of the first Cuban blind cave fish: the untold story,"
narrates the history of the discovery of blind cave fish in Cuba.
The Cuban discovery predates the discovery of blind cave fish in
Mammoth Cave, Kentucky. Until recently, the Mammoth Cave fish were
considered the earliest-known blind cave fish in scientific
literature. Romero's article is based on little-known documents he
discovered in museum archives.
Professors emeriti, Dougan and Smith, still making history
Two ASU emeriti faculty continue to achieve. The
Arkansas Historical Association announced association awards and
recognitions at its recent 66th annual awards banquet, held at the
William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock. Dr. C.
Calvin Smith, Emeritus Professor of History, received the
association's Lifetime Achievement Award. Another Emeritus Professor
of History, Dr. Michael B. Dougan, appears as a contributor
to the book, The Earth Reeled and Trees Trembled: Civil War
Arkansas, 1863-1864 (Old Statehouse Museum Publications, ed. Mark K.
Christ). Dougan's contribution, "Say 'Au Revoir' but not 'Good-bye':
The Enduring Confederate Government of Arkansas," is the opening
essay in this collection of lectures given during the museum's Civil
War symposia. These lectures offer compelling portrayals of
Arkansas' involvement in the Civil War.
