Wednesday, August 21, 2019Quite by accident, I found out on the Internet fifteen minutes ago that Chris has passed away. I am filled with sadness by this news. I was a student at UB from 1966 to 1974, receiving a B.A. in psychology, and then a M.A. and Ph.D. in anthropology. I owed much of my intellectual development in anthropology to my three main professors - Ted Steegmann, Chris Duggleby, and Joyce Sirianni. Their guidance, tutelage, and encouragement played an important role in my decision to pursue an academic career in anthropology. I have nothing but fond memories of those years. Doug, I hope you remember me. Please accept my sincere condolences to you and your children. Sincerely, Joseph So, Professor Emeritus of Anthropology Trent University Peterborough, Ontario, Canada

Wednesday, August 14, 2019I'm so terribly sorry to hear about the passing of Chris. I have very fond memories of my time as a graduate student at UB under her tutelage - including a course where there were only two of us students enrolled, making for a fun and intimate semester. She made me feel like I belonged during my first year in graduate school - a time often fraught with anxiety and self-doubt. I enjoyed seeing her and her husband every year at the AAPA meetings and will miss catching up with her. My deepest condolences to her family and friends.

Wednesday, August 7, 2019I have many fond memories of Chris and am saddened by her passing. Chris and Doug were one of the first couples to invite me to their home when I started my job at UB in 1971, and from that warm welcome Chris continued to be a good colleague who helped me in many ways over the years. She was a gifted teacher, dedicated to her graduate advisees and undergraduate students. For years she chaired the Graduate Committee with energy, discipline, and a vision of strengthening and expanding our graduate program. While serving on quite a few MA and PhD committees with her, I found Chris to be receptive to interdisciplinary cooperation among the department’s subfields in providing our students the integrative training that best prepared them for successful careers. Chris made a lasting difference in our program, and she will be missed. My condolences to her family.

Wednesday, August 7, 2019I have been privileged to call Chris a Friend for many, many years. I met them sailing and was 'rail meat' for many fun and learning years of racing as well as being able to sail with them on my own boat. There is a part of Masonic Ritual that befits Chris: 'May you live respected, and die regretted.' You will be missed, my dear friend.

Monday, August 5, 2019Chris was among the people who Marcia and I interacted with when we first moved to Buffalo and to the Anthropology Department in 1977. Coming from California she provided us with wonderful advice for adapting to the "unusual culture and climate" of Buffalo. She was the first to take us sailing on Lake Ontario and to introduce us to the WNY-Ontario sailing culture. As a colleague of over 40 years, she had wonderful qualities. She always was willing to take on departmental responsibilities: as head of the graduate committee she put a student's welfare first; and as the years went on I came to realize how her cautious reaction to change was frequently right. As she said, the department will swing to the left and then back to the right and then a few years later back to the left. She knew if history tells us anything, it is that there are no wholly new questions in education policy. There are just different answers. Most of my students took many of her courses and to a person they felt that they had learned a significant amount. She was dedicated to the department, to the university and to Anthropology. We will miss her as a friend, a colleague, and as an Anthropologist. Our thoughts are with her family.
