Carol J. Compton, MAESL 1968

Dr. Compton stopped by at SIUC the other day, on her way to a conference of the Association for Asian Studies in Atlanta. She is the editor of The Journal of Southeast Asian Language Teaching, which is entirely online, she said, and though retired, she'd had a good career as a linguist, editor and language teacher, with many fond memories of SIUC in the old days of the barracks (now gone) and a degree that sounds funny to anyone who has been here less than thirty years.

She promised to send pictures- or perhaps scan them, so we can have some idea of what life was like back then. We plan to hold her to her promise...if at all possible. -TL
