Department of Biology apparently heard that I gave a good seminar, because they
invited me to present essentially the same seminar to them on October 29, 1999.

3 “…professionals in higher education do not have to do anything to discourage women since society already does so. Failing to encourage them, however, is to discriminate without even trying.” Forrest, Hotelling, and Kuk, 1984, The elimination of sexism in university environments, presented at the Second Annual Symposium on Student Development Through Campus Ecology, Pingree Park, Colorado.
An addendum: In fairness to Mr. Takasugi, I should point out that shortly before leaving UI, I asked Dr.
Weiss if he had spoken early in his appointment as
Dept. Chair with Mr. Takasugi . Dr. Weiss admitted that he and Mr.
Takasugi had spoken together shortly after Dr. Weiss came to UI, and before his
first meeting with the faculty in Parma. He claimed that they had spoken
about the legislature's mandate for the Pollination Ecology Position, but not
about me or my modeling.

Subsequent interactions with other people in other places have led me to an alternative hypothesis about how Dr. Weiss came to see modeling as detrimental to my program. However, the point is not who influenced Dr. Weiss to think that way, but that he never approached me for an explanation.
|Dr. Strickler hired
by Division of Entomology
Chair: Dr. Sharron Quisenberry;
Department of PSES, Head: Dr. Larry O’Keeffe
It should be noted that Dr. O'Keeffe characterized the
job search as the most difficult of his career. I was told that the
department was split in its decision more or less evenly between me and a
postdoc already working at the Parma Research and Extension Center.
There was strong support for the postdoc in the Alfalfa Seed
Industry. I would not have accepted the job if a number of people
from the industry had not said to me that they would work with me if I was
offered and accepted the job. I am very grateful to the many people
in the industry who interacted with me in positive ways while I was at UI,
and who continue to do so.
