The quality of intellect and spirit that has made colleges and universities our most cherished institutions is selflessness. The goal of teaching, research, and service, the traditional triad of collegiate missions, is not riches or profit, but enlightenment. Nowhere is this goal more clearly evident at Eckerd College, and nowhere is the life of the mind made more manifest, than in the scholarship and artistic productivity of its faculty. The remarkable array of books, essays, articles, musical and theatrical performances, art exhibits, honors and awards noted here emphatically reveals the talent of our faculty to the rest of the world. The breadth, variety, imagination and intensity of the work represented here cannot help but make all who love Eckerd proud, and those who do not yet know Eckerd, new admirers. –Donald R. Eastman III, President, Eckerd College

Brooks, G. R., Aretxabaleta, A. L., & West, N.W. (2011). Project earth science: Physical oceanography (2nd ed.). Arlington, Virginia: National Science Teachers Association Press.

gregg r. brooks Gregg R. Brooks, Professor of Marine Sciences and Geosciences, earned his Ph.D. in Marine Geology at the University of South Florida in St. Petersburg and has been at Eckerd College since 1992. His research interests include the geologic development of continental margins and the study of sediments and sedimentary processes in marine and coastal systems. He has published more than 40 peer-reviewed articles and secured more than $5,000,000 in research funding over the past ten years from the National Science Foundation, the United States Geological Survey, and a variety of other federal, state and local governmental agencies as well as private foundations. In addition to leading off-campus courses in the Bahamas, Belize, Roatan, Alaska, Australia, Africa, Morocco, and Fiji, Prof. Brooks offers a broad array of marine geology courses on campus. Annually, he supports 10-20 of the College’s undergraduates on grant-funded projects.

“Project Earth Science: Physical Oceanography immerses students in activities that focus on water, the substance that covers nearly three-quarters of Earth’s surface. Eighteen ready-to-use, teachertested classroom activities and supplemental readings offer explorations and straightforward explanations to foster intuitive understanding of key science concepts. Students cover topics such as the structure of water molecules, saltwater and freshwater mixing, and tidal forces as they create waves, dissolve substances, float eggs, and more. Background materials for students and teachers, detailed and illustrated procedures for doing hands-on activities, and supplemental resources provide all the tools necessary to make a splash in the classroom.” –Amazon.com

Crow, T. (2012). Eyes right: Confessions from a woman Marine. Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press.

“A riveting memoir!” —Fred Leebron, author of Six Figures

“It’s truly marvelous to read a nonfiction book that is not an indictment nor an apologia nor a self-justifying hagiography... It is written with a large and open heart.” —Pinckney Benedict, author of Dogs of God

tracy crow Tracy Crow, Assistant Professor of Creative Writing and Coordinator of Student Publications, earned her M.F.A. in Creative Writing, with a concentration in Creative Nonfiction, at Queens University in Charlotte, North Carolina. A nationally recognized college newspaper adviser, she is also the nonfiction editor of Prime Number magazine. She has received

“Terrific!... What I keep coming back to is the interrogation room. That is the room the memoir lives in. The suspense. The way in which information is given out bit by bit to make a whole and layered history, so that it’s clear that no interrogation could ever yield the true story.” —Kathryn Rhett, author of Near Breathing

numerous awards for her short fiction and journalism, including the Department of Defense Thomas Jefferson Writing Award. Her essays and short stories have appeared in a number of literary journals and have been nominated for three Pushcart Prizes. Under the pen name Carver Greene, Prof. Crow published the conspiracy thriller, An Unlawful Order, the first in a new series to feature a military heroine. During her ten-year career as a United States Marine, she served as a community relations director, media relations director, and public affairs officer and earned two Navy Achievement Medals and two Good Conduct Medals.

Johnston, C. (2012). My father’s war: Fighting with the Buffalo Soldiers in World War II. Tuscaloosa: University of Alabama Press.

carolyn johnston Carolyn Johnston, Elie Wiesel Professor of Humane Letters, earned her Ph.D. in History from the University of California at Berkeley and has taught at Eckerd College since 1978. She is the author of three previous non-fiction books: Jack London, An American Radical; Sexual

“You will not know the full scope of America’s military role in World War II until you read this absorbing book by Carolyn Johnston. She describes the heroic black soldiers on the battlefields in stories too little known until now. Read it.” —Elie Wiesel, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and author of Night

Power: Feminism and the Family in America; and Cherokee Women in Crisis: Trail of Tears, Civil War, and Allotment, 1838-1907. Prof. Johnston was instrumental in the creation of the Women’s and Gender Studies major and the Environmental Studies major at the College and has taught in the Ford Apprentice Scholar’s program since its inception 25 years ago. She was a Woodrow Wilson Fellow, a Danforth Fellow, and a Pulitzerprize nominee. In 1991, she received the Robert A. Staub Distinguished Professor of the Year award, given annually at the Eckerd College Commencement ceremony.

“My Father’s War captures the experiences of black soldiers in the famed Buffalo Soldiers unit of the 92nd Division who served with distinction—and controversy—in some of the most brutal fighting in the war. Johnston does an excellent job of allowing a handful of veterans (including her father) to tell their own story, skillfully weaving them into her narrative, and she has made use of wartime letters to augment their still-vivid memories.” —Thomas Childers, author of Wings of Morning: The Story of the Last American Bomber Shot Down Over Germany in World War II

“My Father’s War offers a completely new perspective and covers much more in depth the grueling story of the Buffalo Soldiers’ battles in Italy. This book breaks new ground in a most readable and fascinating way.” —Maggi M. Morehouse, author of Fighting in the Jim Crow Army: Black Men and Women Remember World War II
