Dr. Edward Wellin, Former UWM Professor of Anthropology, has passed away

The Department of Anthropology notes with sadness the passing of Professor Edward Wellin, a fixture of this department and of UWM for more than 25 years. His influence on our department, particularly in the area of medical anthropology, continues to this day, and we remain deeply appreciative of all that he gave to this campus during his career.

Here is a link to an interview with the late Edward Wellin discussing his earlier work to a work group at the University of Illinois – Chicago in 1998. And here is a link to his obituary.
