1 May 2014

On 31 December 2009 I retired from California State University, Chico, and am now associated with the University as a Professor Emeritus of Anthropology.

PLEASE NOTE: this is an on-going "work-in-progress" as a result of the cruises that I have made presentation on since December 2004, with emphasis on "Peoples and Cultures of the Pacific" as well as World War II. Selected itineraries have also included lectures on Paul Gauguin, Charles Darwin as well as Science, Technology, & Creativity. In alphabetical order, the ships have been: Amsterdam (2008 & 2013), Oosterdam (2012), Pacific Princess (2006), Paul Gauguin (2007), Prinsendam (2009), Queen Elizabeth (2012), Queen Elizabeth 2 (2007), Queen Victoria (2011), Rhapsody of the Seas (2011), Rotterdam (2010), Ryndam (2008), Sapphire Princess (2007 & 2014]), Spirit of Oceanus (2009), Statendam (2013 & 2014), Star Princess (2012), Tahitian Princess (2004 & 2005), Volendam (2010 & September-October 2014), and Zaandam (2008 & 2011).

This particular page is updated on an occasional basis and includes academic publications, tourist information, various web pages, as well as various items that might be found in a city, county, college, or university library. The following words of the distinguished Pacific scholar O. H. K. Spate [1911-2000] are well worth considering as you peruse this page:

"If it would take a lifetime to visit all the shores and islands of the Pacific, one sometimes feels it would take nine lives to master fully the vasty literature of the deep. All that the explorer can do is to mark some positions and take some soundings.... [stress added]." Oskar Hermann Khristian Spate, 1979, The Spanish Lake (University of Minnesota Press), page x.
