      From Friday's NY Times:




      Sheldon Judson, 80, Professor and Author in Geo-Archeology
      By NICK RAVO

      Sheldon Judson, an archeologist and a retired professor of geo-sciences at
      Princeton University, died Thursday in his home in Princeton, N.J. He was
      80.
      The cause was pancreatic cancer, according to a statement released by the
      university.
      Judson was born on Oct. 18, 1918, in Utica, N.Y. He earned a bachelor's
      degree from Princeton in 1940 and master's and doctoral degrees from Harvard
      University. After teaching for several years at the University of Wisconsin,
      he joined the Princeton faculty in 1955.
      Judson was the author of numerous geo-archeological reports, including
      several studies of paleo-Indian sites in North America and studies of late
      Paleolithic rock shelters in France. He also worked extensively in Etruscan,
      Roman and Greek sites in Italy.
      From 1970 to 1982, Judson was the chairman of the Department of Geosciences
      at Princeton. From 1972 to 1977, he served as chairman of the University
      Research Board with the rank of dean. In 1964, he was appointed the Knox
      Taylor professor of geology. He also held faculty fellowships from the Ford,
      Guggenheim and Fulbright Foundations.
      Judson wrote or co-wrote textbooks and workbooks used in introductory
      geology classes. His best-known book is perhaps "Physical Geology" (Prentice
      Hall, 1954) written with L. Don Leet and, in revised editions, with Marvin
      E. Kauffman. His most recent book was "Earth: An Introduction to Geologic
      Change" (Prentice Hall, 1995) written with S.M. Richardson.
      His first wife, Anne Perrin, died in 1990. He is survived by his second
      wife, Pamela Judson-Rhodes; three daughters, Stephanie Dean Judson of
      Riverton, N.J., Lucy Sheldon Judson of Boulder, Colo., and Anne Perrin
      Judson of Burlington, Vt.; six grandchildren; four stepchildren, and six
      stepgrandchildren.
