My office, my teaching, and lab work, have been in this building, the Albert C. Jacobs Life Sciences Center, ever since I began at Trinity in 1971. The building, opened in 1969, is a recognized example of Brutalist architecture. Despite occasional attempts to have people call it the Jacobs building, it is referred to as LSC. LSC is the home of Psychology, Biology, and much of Neuroscience.

Beginning in 1975, I served numerous 3 year terms as Department Chair. The last term ended after the Spring semester in 2011.  I retired at the end of June, 2015 but taught occasionally thereafter and continue scholarly work in ecological psychology.

When our Society (ISEP) began its journal, Ecological Psychology, in 1989, I became the first Editor and continued until early 2016. Much of my professional time was devoted to directing the ISEP and to editing the journal.

The tabs at the top [and bottom] of the page are self-explanatory and link to other information. Names and links to some Trinity grads that I’ve known well, or otherwise know about, are on the Departmental History page. All of our students and faculty members are part of that history, and I intend to add information as people send it in.
