IU Celebrates the Work of Christopher Peebles

One of my graduate school mentors-turned-senior colleagues, Dr. Christopher Peebles has been recognized by the university through the bestowal of the Thomas Hart Benton Mural Medallion by IU President Michael McRobbie. Chris has maintained a remarkable administrative and research agenda, concurrently working as a Southeastern archaeologist (hence our connection) and as a research computing scholar and administrator. He is transitioning into retirement this year after more that 25 years of service at Indiana, where he has directed the Glenn Black Laboratory of Archaeology and served in a number of key administrative roles. The IU Press Release is available here.  Congratulations Chris!

(Chris was an amazing teacher and supporter of my work during my graduate school career and he has been a generous mentor in the ways of university administration since my return to Indiana.)
