Re: [SACC-L] Who is Geoffrey P. Hunt?
- The follow message was just sent by the anthropologists Geoffrey Hunt to me.
He asks that it be posted on the list.
I have just been informed by Julia Kirst that on the SACC list my name has
been associated with a scurrilous article that appeared in the publication
The association of my name to this article has caused both myself and our
Institute many problems and I would wish that all readers who subscribe to
the list should know that I am not the author of the article. The author of
the article is a business executive and not an anthropologist.
I am a Social Anthropologist and senior scientist at the Institute of
Scientific Analysis in San Francisco an independent non-profit academic
research Institute established over 40 years ago.
Disclaimers can be found on both our own Institute website and on the
website of the American Thinker.
