“I was honored and pleased to receive the Carol V. Ruppe Distinguished Service Award at the Society for Historical Archaeology meeting in Seattle. My first SHA meeting was Charleston, SC, in 1975, and I have attended most of the meetings since that time. The SHA is very special to me, and the Ruppe Award means a great deal to me.”
