Eugenie Clark to Lecture on 
Sea Monsters Dec. 14 



World renowned zoologist 
Eugenie Clark will inaugurate her 
open lecture series on marine bio- 
logy with a free lecture, "Magnifi- 
cent Sea Monsters of the Undersea 
Desert," to be held Saturday, Dec. 
14 at noon in the main auditorium 
of the Center for Adult Education, 
University College. 

Clark, known throughout the 
world as "The Shark Lady" for her 
path-breaking research on these 
often misunderstood fish, will also 
sign copies of her latest book. The 
Desert Beneath the Sea, at a brief 
reception following the lecture. 
Published by Scholastic Books, 
Desert Beneath the Sea is Clark's first 
book for children. Her two other 
books are Lady with a Spear (1953) 
and The Lady and the Sharks (1969), 

"Dr. Clark's willingness to estab- 
lish a lecture scries open to alumni 
and friends and family of campus 
faculty and staff is just another out- 
standing example of her commit- 
ment to College Park," says Arthur 
Popper, professor and chair of the 
Department of Zoology. 'Through 
this lecture series and her new 
book, a new generation of enthusi- 



astic young people will be exposed 
to Dr. Clark's work with sharks 
and the wonders of marine bio- 
logy," 

Clark, who has been diving for 
more than 30 years, has discovered 
1 1 new species of fish, and four 
others have been named in her 
honor. A prolific writer, she has 
contributed more than 100 articles 
to scientific journals and popular 
magazines, including National Geo- 
graphic. Of her more than 20 tele- 
vision specials. The Sharks," a 1982 
National Geographic Special, holds 
PBS's highest-ever Nielson rating. 
Her latest documentary, filmed on 
location on the Red Sea, recently 
aired on the Discovery Channel. 

This month, the Department of 
Zoology announced that it would 
establish The Eugenie Clark Scholar 
ship to honor Clark and her 
research. The scholarship will allow 
students to advance their careers in 
zoology through direct research 
with College Park faculty.

Doctoral Program in Higher Education 
Produces Future Educational Leaders 



The graduate studies program in 
the Department of Higher Educa- 
tion Administration and Policy in 
the College of Education is an 
investment in the future of higher 
education. 

"The program gave me an intro- 
duction to the higher (?ducation 
association world — where 1 now 
make my living," says Louis Albert, 
vice president of the American 
Association for Higher Education 
and a program graduate. 

"I spent 12 years in the Mary- 
land Community College System 
and never visited 1 Dupont Circle," 
adds Albert, a former dean at Essex 
Community College. "Through the 
program, I was exposed to some 
very valuable insights about the 
role of national associations." 

The doctoral program provides 
knowledge, skills, and practical 
experience relevant to leadership in 
p»ost-seeondary education, says 
Frank Schmidtlein, an associate 
professor in the Department of 
Education Administration and Pol- 
icy and the program's coordinator. 

"Graduates are prepared to 
assume significant positions in col- 
leges and universities, national and 
regional associations, state agencies 
and commissions, as well as in 
executive and legislative branches 
of both state and federal govern- 
ment," says Schmidtlein. 

"We have administrators with 
management training in higher 
education who are not acquainted 
with academic values and perspec- 
tives and administrators with aca- 
demic experience but little manage- 
ment training," says Schmidtlein. 
"Our program seeks to bridge this 

The program brings together 
doctoral students and faculty mem- 



bers who share an interest in the 
study of higher educahon and who 
are dedicated to the improvement 
of colleges and universities as 
agencies of human understanding, 
individual growth, community ser- 
vice, and social justice, adds 
Schmidtlein. 

The program, one of the largest 
in the nation with approximately 
1 00 doctoral students, requires stu- 
dents to take courses on higher 
education and in cognate areas 
such as business, public affairs, and 
the social sciences. 

"Students work closely with a 
large and nationally- recognized 
complement of full-time faculty 
who are experienced both as schol- 
ars and as senior practitioners," 
says Schmidtlein. 'The diversity 



and abilities of the program's stu- 
dents ensures an intellectually 
vibrant and socially supportive 
learning environment." 

Besides Albert, program gradu- 
ates include Marilyn Berman, an 
associate dean in the College of 
Education; Jane Lawrence, acting 
director of the university's Honors 
Program; and Julie Porosky, vice 
president of State Programs at Uni- 
versity College. 

Besides Schmidtlein, full-time 
faculty includes Robert Berdahl, 
Robert Bimbaum, Richard Chait, 
and Monique Clague. Part-time fac-

AHDP: Much More Than a 
Playground for Young and Old 




Every Saturday morning. Cole 
Field House becomes a playground 
for the young and the old. Students 
can be seen together with senior 
citizens participating in everything 
from tricycle races to dancing. 

These activities are a part of the 
unique Adults' Health and Devel- 
opmental Program (AHDD which 
for nearly 20 years has matched 
College Park students and com- 
munity volunteers with "golden- 
aged" citizens for Saturday morn- 
ing workouts, counseling and com- 
panionship. 

Over the years AHDP has 
become an internationally known 
program designed to affect posi- 
tively the health, well-being, and 
physical fitness of institutionalized 
and non-institutionalized older 
adults. 

One of the first organized geron- 
tological programs, AHDP has 
proved that the quality of life for 
an older adult can be improved by 
reducing health risks through par- 
ticipation in fitness and other well- 
ness programs while simultaneous- 
ly encouraging meaningful social 
interactions. The fact that adults 
aged 65 and older are the fastest 
growing segment of the United 
States population offers further 
support for the need for more pro- 
grams like AHDP. 

Founded by Dan Lcviton, pro- 
fessor of health education, the pro- 
gram is an arm of the College of 
Health and Human Performance, 
but it draws students from virtual- 
ly every academic major, giving it a 
truly interdisciplinary focus. Uni- 
versity students enrolled in the 
course receive credit for participa- 
tion, but the program includes a 
large number of volunteers and 
alumni as well. 

AHDP pairs "staffers" one-on- 
one with seniors who come to the 
program from nursing homes and 
veterans centers, as well as on the 
recommendation of doctors or fam- 
ily members. 

Volunteers are responsible for 
developing a fitness program spcxri- 
fically designed to meet the goals 
and capabilities of their senior. The 
idea is to get these individuals to 
do things they wouldn't do ordi- 
narily and in the process prove to 
them that they arc still capable 
beings with something to share. 

On a typical Saturday, staffers 
arrive at 8:30 a.m. for an hour of 
training before the seniors arrive. 
In the following hour and a half, 
participants engage in such activi- 
ties as singing, modified aerobics, 
swimming, weight training, baw- 
ling, ping pong or tennis. The list 
goes on. 

At 11 a.m., participants come 
together for an hour of health edu- 
cation where they learn about 
stress management, the proper use 
of medicine, nutrition, hyperten- 
sion, and osteoporosis. This session 
often leads to intcrgcnerational dis- 
cussions on current topicsof inter- 
est ranging from sexuality or war 
to death. TTiis reciprocal exchange 



of ideas is enlightening for all 
according to Nancy Blaney, chair of 
the board of advisors for the pro- 
gram. "There is no racism^ no 
sexism, no class discrimination. Just 
people," she says. 

Blaney is an example of a Col- 
lege Park graduate who is sold on 
the program. She first got involved 
with it nearly 19 years ago during 
the second semester of her fresh- 
man year. She served as a student 
staff member, group leader, and 
now chairs the board of advisors. 
She says many university alumni 
are involved with the program, 
some who wanted to continue par- 
ticipation after serving as student 
volunteers and others who found it 
a rewarding way to give something 
back to the university while simul- 
taneously helping others. 

Alumni interested in AHDP can 
volunteer for the actual recreational 
program, or can work behind the 
scenes on the board of directors, 
which is currently trying to raise 
funds to expand the program to 
other campuses and raise national 
awareness of the need for geronto- 
logical programs. 

Blaney says AHDP reflects the 



three missions of the university, 
"teaching, research, and community 
involvement," but she remains 
involved for another and perhaps 
more important reason. "It works," 
she says. "We have so many suc- 
cess stories like the 70-year-old 
blind woman we had jumping on a 
trampoline by the end of the sem- 
ester, or the man whose wife had 
just left him, had lost his job, and 
was on a dozen or more prescrip- 
tions when he came to us who can 
now bike 5(X) miles and takes only 
one heart medication. They show 
the strength of the program." 

AHDP gives older adults a bet- 
ter sense of power over their own 
health and well t>eing. 

The program has one other ben- 
efit as well that is not listed in the 
course description but which often 
occurs. That is the development of 
friendships that may last a lifetime. 
As Blaney says: "We bring people 
together," 

Anyone interested in getting 
involved with AHDP should con- 
tact Nancy Blaney or Dan Levi ton 
at (301)405-2528.

Library Loan Period is Extended for Classified Staff 

During these times of fiscal and service cuts. Libraries Director 
Joanne Hairar has announced one area of increased service to users. 
After Jan, 21, 1992, the loan period at the university Libraries for 
classified staff will become equivalent to that given to graduate 
students, or 56 days. (Excepted will be materials that have shor- 
tened loan periods for all users: the Hombake Library collection, 
reserves, Nonprint Media items, and special collections.) The 
change came from suggestions made by Libraries' staff members 
and extends to all classified pcrsoiinel in the UM System. 




RTVF's Weiss 
Award 



Gene Weiss, associate professor 
of radio-TV-film (RTVF), was 
recently awarded the 1991 Silver 
Circle Award from the Washing- 
ton, D.C, chapter of the National 
Academy of Television Arts and 
Sciences. 

Established in 1986, the award 
honors media professionals who 
have devoted at least 25 years to 
the broadcasting industry and who 
have made a significant contribu- 
tion to the Washington, D.C. broad- 
cast community. 

According to Weiss, his contri- 
bution to the Washington, D.C. 
broadcast community has been a 
steady stream of well-trained 
media professionals graduating 
from the RTVF department. 

Weiss came to the university in 
1969. At that time, the department 
(then known as the Division of 
Speech and Dramatic Art) offered 
only radio and TV. By 1971 film 
was added, and Weiss was division 
director. Weiss says the department 
took a tremendous leap forward 
during the eight years he headed it. 
"We started to produce programm- 



Receives 



ing on a fairly large scale," he says. 
"We tried to have students produce 
material that really showed what 
the possibilities were for film and 
television, and were extremely suc- 
cessful at that." 

According to Weiss, the depart- 
ment's production facility is among 
the top six in the country. One stu- 
dent produced an hour-long docu- 
mentary on the John F, Kennedy 
assassination in this facility. The 
master's thesis film, called "Reason- 
able Doubts," was then picked up 
by the Arts & Entertainment Net- 
work. This student was hired by 
Dakota Films. 

Weiss proudly notes that many 
former students now hold respon- 
sible positions all across the coun- 
try in every aspect of media; vice 
president of production for Walt 
Disney Productions; executive pro- 
ducer of "Good Morning America"; 
producer of "America's Most Want- 
ed"; head of training and informa- 
tion for Delta Airiines' in-house 
production unit. One time, Weiss 
says, he called George Lucas in San 
Francisco and ended up talking to 




Gene Weiss 

a former student who was writing 

and producing for Lucas. 

Weiss was honored along with 
22 other distinguished media pro- 
fessionals, among them Joel Albert, 
manager of news operations for 
WRC-TV; Sophie Altman, creator 
and executive producer of "It's 
Academic"; Christie Basham, senior 
producer of NBC's "Sunday Today 
and "Meet the Press"; John Barter, 
news anchor for WJLA-TV; and 
Max Schindler, director of the 
Washington segments of NBC's 
"Today Show." 



Handelman, Turner Publish Books 

"Important contribution" and 
"theoretical significance" are words 
used to describe two books written 
by English department faculty and 
published this fall. 

Susan Handelman, author of 
Fragments of Redemption: Jewish 
Thought and Literary Theory in 
Benjamin, Scholem, and Levinas, says 
in the book's preface, "...1 chose 
these three figures because each is 
a Jew engaged in mediating the 
Jewish and modern worlds, as 1 
am. More specifically, each has had 
enormous influence on contempor- 
ary ideas about language, history, 
and interpretation in a variety of 
fields from literary criticism to reli- 
gious studies, philosophy, and 
social theory." 

Jose Faur, an expert and author 
on Jewish thought and Talmudic 
literature, says of the book, "...a 
particularly important contribution 
to an understanding of the emer- 
gence of critical thought in the 20th 
century and the intercrossing of 
Jewish intellectual tradition with 
modem thinking." 

Originally published by Indiana 
University Press, the book now is 
being translated into Japanese for 
publication by Hohfei University 




Susan Handelman 

Press. 

Handelman also is the author of 
The Slayers of Moses: The Emergence 
of Rabbinic Interpretation in Modern 
Literary Theory and coeditor of Psy- 
choanalysis and Religion. 

Mark Turner's new book, Read- 
ing Minds: The Study of English in 
the Age of Cognitive Science, offers a 
vision of the central role that lan- 
guage and the arts of language can 
play in the adventure of modern 
cognitive science, the discovery of 



Mark Turner 



the human mind, 

Gilles Fauconnier of the Univer- 
sity of California, San Diego, says 
'The book is of great theoretical 
significance and it is a pleasure to 
read." 

Turner also is the author of 
Death is the Mother of Beauty: Mind, 
Metaphor, Criticism and coauthor of 
More Than Cool Reason: A Field 
Guide to Poetic Metaphor.

Book Focuses on Free 
Women of Color in Rural South

Adele Alexander 



Until well after the Civil War, 
free women of color in the rural 
south were often looked upon by 
society as non-persons. 

"Neither black nor white, afflu- 
ent nor impoverished, enslaved nor 
truly free, these women of color 
lived and died in a shadowy realm 



situated somewhere between the 
legal, social, and economic 
extremes of empowered whites and 
subjugated blacks," says Adele 
Logan Alexander, a lecturer in the 
Afro-American Studies Program. 

Alexander is the author of 
Ambiguous Lives: Free Women of 
Color in Rural Georgia, 1789-1879 
(The University of Arkansas Press). 
The book focuses on the women of 
Alexander's own family as 
representative of this subcaste of 
the African -American community. 

And while society may have 
seen them as non-persons, 
Alexander believes that their lives 
are worthy of attention because of 
the vciy ambiguities that 
surrounded their existence. 

"The intricacies, gradations, and 
subtleties of their anomalous 
experience became part of the 
tangled skein of American history 
and exemplify our country's end- 
less diversity, complexity, and self- 
contradictions," says Alexander. 
"These are the people that America 
has overlooked." 

They were also people who did 
not conform to the negative stereo- 
type of blacks as poor, ignorant 
and oppressed, says Alexander. 

"When you look at free people 
of color after emancipation, you see 
a high percentage who became 
middle class African- Americans," 



says Alexander. 

Alexander first decided to write 
the book when she became interest- 
ed in her grandmother, who was a 
suffragist. 

"I thought to myself, 'What was 
there about this person in the 1890s 
that made her think that regardless 
of gender or race, she ought to be 
equal to everyone else?' " says 
Alexander. 

While studying her family, she 
found that some free women of 
color often had ties to black male 
slaves, while others established 
alliances with white men. 

As far as looks were concerned 
the members of her family were, as 
she put it, often "more white than 
black," but with only a few excep- 
tions they remained closely tied to 
the black community despite the 
segregation and discriminatory pol- 
icies of ttie white South. 

"White society looked upon free 
people of color with the attitude 
that 'You folks have no real place 
in our society, so we'll treat you as 
much like slaves as we can,'" says 
Alexander, adding that free people 
of color could not vote, had few 
rights of white citizens, and could 
not purchase property except 
through a white person. 

"They were survivors," says 
Alexander.

Koblinsky and Anderson Receive 

$300,000 Grant to Study Homeless Preschoolers 



Sally Koblinksy and Elaine 
Anderson, a professor and asso- 
ciate professor in the Department 
of Family and Community Devel- 
opment in the College of Human 
Ecology, have received a $300,000 
grant from the Dcparlmenl of 
Health and Human Services to 
study homeless preschoolers. 

The three-year project will be 
conducted with United Planning 
Organization, a Washington, D.C, 
Head Start agency. The study will 
compare the development and the 
self-concept of District of Columbia 
Head Start preschoolers who are 
homeless with Head Start pro- 
schoolers in permanent housing. 

The study will also explore the 
relationship between family func- 
tioning and child outcomes in the 
two groups and examine whether 
changes in children's learning and 
behavior during the Head Start 
year are related to family variables. 

"Studies have shown that par- 
ents arc the primary educators of 
their children and have a signifi- 
cant impact on their children's cog- 
nitive, physical, and social -emo- 
tional development," says 
Koblinsky. 

"Therefore," adds Anderson, "it 
is important that educational 
programs such as Head Start 
acquire greater knowledge about 
the mediating role of family vari- 
ables — such as social support 



maternal depression and family 
hardiness — in children's develop- 
ment." 

In recent years, say Koblinsky 
and Anderson, single-parent famil- 
ies with children have become the 
fastest growing segment of the 
homeless population. 

The two researchers are espe- 
cially interested in observing and 
understanding better the resilience 
of families in the face of such 
adverse conditions as homelessness 
and poverty and how that, in turn, 
affects the children. 

Koblinsky and Anderson say 
that project outcomes may help 
child /family specialists. Head Start 
curriculum developers and teachers 
to design appropriate curricula/ 
teaching strategies to facilitate chil- 
dren's learning and development of 
self-esteem. 

The two also hope that Head 
Start personnel can use project 
findings to help parents to acquire 
better parenting and teaching skills, 
to build family support networks, 
to link their children to out-of- 
school community resources, and 
to obtain help for family problems 
negatively related to the children's 
functioning. 

"Results of this study should 
help the Head Start program to be 
more a more effective resource for 
families— an important benefit 
since Head Start may be one of the 



few community resources available 
and accessible to low-income and 
homeless families," says Koblinsky. 
"By intervening now with these 
children, we are making an invest- 
ment in the future," adds 
Anderson.

Students Contribute 
Clothing, Stuffed 
Animals 

Students in the Department of 
Family and Community Develop- 
ment have contributed more than 
60 bags of warm winter clothing 
and stuffed animals to homeless 
families in two Prince George's 
County shelters and one county 
elementary school with a large 
number of homeless and poor im- 
migrant families. 

The clothing and toy drive was 
spear-hcaded by students in the 
department's Poverty and 
Affluence, Family Policy and 
Decision-making courses. 

Maggie Puchalla, volunteer 
coordinator for homeless shelter 
programs in Prince George's Coun- 
ty, thanked the students for their 
generosity and their "awareness of 
the needs of our less fortunate 
neighbors."
