Re: Copper culture lecture - Madison, Wisconsin
- Stan & Ancient Waterways correspondents,
AES founder, retired UW prof. James Scherz, another friend Laurie,
and I met this afternoon, discussed Ed Grondine's "Man & Impact on
the Americas". Jim purchased five copies of Ed's book and included
exerpts into his own "working paper". Ed was a speaker at the
October, 2006 Ancient American Artifact Preservation Foundation
conference in Big Bay, Michigan.
We also viewed Robert Starling's taster DVD which he presented at the
AAAPF conference; Starling is looking for sponsors, hopes soon to
begin filming: "They All Discovered America".
We viewed Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth", then phoned the
Rydholms in Marquette who were planning on watching the Al Gore video
this very evening. The Rydholms have taken trips to the Arctic
circle, are also very actively involved in mining issues impacting
the environment around their Lake Superior house and 'camp'.
Fred said he was looking forward to speaking via teleconference next
month at the Ancient Earthworks Society meeting on the UW Madison
campus. He was unaware of the date and time, said a Matt Morrison
from SuperiorHearlands.com is handling the arrangments. From the web
site is information for contacting Mr. Morrison:
393 West Crescent Street, Marquette, MI 49855
Fred said he would appreciate it if I would copy and paste your note
from the Ancient Waterways Society site. I asked him to let either
of us know if there will be changes in the AES schedule.
I'd mentioned Fred's book in a post yesterday to this Ancient
Waterways Society; books and CD's can be purchased at superior
heartlands web site: http://superiorheartland.com/
Jim Scherz will be working an hour or two south of Madison January
18th, plans on driving up for the meeting. Following a night shift
at a Madison hospital, I will stick around that evening to attend the
meeting before returning to Central Wisconsin. Hopefully the group
will meet two or three hours earlier for dinner (and let us out-
of=towners know ahead of time).
I read your post to Jim Scherz, Stan. He said to mention to all of
you that Gary Maier is an exceptional speaker and not one to miss,
either---whenever it is he will be scheduled to speak at the AES
