Location: Indiana, United States

I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

Congratulations Professor Eagly!

I just read in the November issue of the American Psychologist that Professor Alice Eagly received the American Psychology Association's "Award for Distinguished Scientific Contrubutions." This is a high award and, of course, well earned by Professor Eagly.

I personally owe much to Alice Eagly. I did a sabbatical under Alice when she was on the faculty at Purdue. She introduced me to the Theory of Reasoned Action -- a theory that drove much of my research and that of sereral of my students.

I am proud to have had the association I had with such a revered psychologist and one of the leading scholars in the world in the area of attitudes.
