Section history -- Part I (draft in download section).

Less than a month ago, CITASA Chair, Barry Wellman, brought up the idea of writing a section history: "With so many changes, I think it would be great to inform folks of our
roots" and suggested that Ron Anderson, CITASA's first Chair (1988-89) and professor emeritus of sociology at the University of Minnesota, write Part I.

Well I was very pleasantly surprised last night to receive a draft from Ron. A pdf version is now available in the download section. Ron would welcome your comments and feedback at ( or in person this weekend in Philadelphia.
