     After over 38 years of service, I retired from full-time teaching at Elizabethtown College in May 2007. I continue to maintain my WWW Virtual Library: International Affairs Resources, teach and lecture occasionally as an adjunct professor, and help advance the College's international connections. On this website you will find syllabi in PDF for the courses that I teach, a class and office schedule, guides for the use of Internet sources in international studies, and information about and pictures from our nine Spring Break field trips to Ecuador and Costa Rica from 1998 to 2008.
