Milestones

GeoTalk
Mount Holyoke was well represented at the fortieth annual meeting of the Northeastern Section of the Geological Society of America held March 14–16 in Saratoga Springs, New York. Mark McMenamin, professor of geology and chair of earth and environment, and geology major Emily Pratt ’06 presented their research to 700 conference attendees. McMenamin's talk was titled “Microbial Influence and Environmental Convergence in Marine and Lacustrine Depositional Settings.” Pratt’s talk was titled “Interpretation of Short Core Lamination Stratigraphy of Lake Linné, Svalbard, Norway.”

Honorable Mention
Constitutional rights expert Chris Pyle, professor of politics, can be found in the pages of Robert O’Harrow Jr.’s new book, No Place to Hide: Behind the Scenes of Our Emerging Surveillance Society (Free Press, 2005). O’Harrow, an award-winning Washington Post reporter, presents an unnerving account of the marriage of the private and public sectors to create a security-industrial complex. He recounts Pyle’s stint as a constitutional law teacher at the Army’s intelligence school in the late sixties and his subsequent whistle-blowing on the Army’s spy operations and surveillance of civilian political activity.
