It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of alumnus Conrad “Mac” Goodwin. Mac was Professor Mary Beaudry’s first doctoral graduate. Mac was interested in history, culture, and geography of North America, the circum-Caribbean, the Pacific, and their Old World precursors. He studied cultural and ecological adaptation, agricultural systems, landscape analysis, and urbanization processes. He specialized in cultural resource planning and management and the concept, development, and implementation of public interpretation programs for historical sites and museums.
