My research interests are in the ecology, taxonomy and systematics of diatoms (Bacillariophyta) and other freshwater algae. I am particularly interested in paleolimnology and the use of diatoms to infer short-term historical changes in aquatic ecosystems due to human modification and long-term changes in response to climatic factors. I feel that among algal groups, diatoms can provide numerous research opportunities in ecological studies, paleoecology, cell physiology, and systematic biology. I have conducted field research on the growth characteristics of periphyton mats in the Florida Everglades. Presently, I am investigating the taxonomy of algal assemblages in lakes and aquatic ecosystems of Isle Royale National Park.

Hello! Dzień dobry! Buenas días! Welcome to my faculty homepage!

I teach history and geography at UAS. Over the years, I’ve held a variety of jobs ranging from farm laborer, to small-town journalist, to research assistant to a member of the British parliament, to freelance writer. I joined the UAS faculty on the Ketchikan campus in fall 2007. Prior to moving to Alaska, I taught history courses at University of St. Thomas, Hamline University, and Anoka-Ramsey Community College in Minnesota. I also served as assistant project director at Center for Nations in Transition, at the Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota where I helped design and administer USAID and State Department-sponsored training programs for business, economics, and political science faculty and NGO leaders in Ukraine and east central Europe.

My research and teaching interests are wide-ranging and diverse: immigration and ethnicity, military history, war and genocide, the impact of technology on the history and geography of the Great Plains and Midwest, local and regional studies, and the history of Poland and central and eastern Europe. My current research topics include immigrant demography and epidemiology, crime and deviance among Polish immigrants in the U.S., the ethnic groups of southeast Alaska, anti-communism among American ethnic groups, and the problems of modern Polish history. I am currently editing a collected volume of translated articles on the activities of the communist security services in Poland since 1944. This will be the first book of published research in English based on previous closed files of secret police.

I am a fellow at the Piast Institute: A National Center for Polish and Polish-American Affairs and past president of the Polish American Cultural Institute of Minnesota. I am also currently contributing editor for the Encyclopedia of American Immigration (second edition). I am the author or co-author of 13 books including Traveler’s History of Poland (2007), Minnesota (2006), The Eagle and the Cross: A History of Polish Roman Catholic Union of America (2003), and Community of Strangers: Change, Turnover, and Turbulence and the Transformation of a Midwestern Country Town (1999). I’ve also written numerous reports, articles, and reviews in publications such as Journal of American Ethnic History, Polin: Studies in Polish Jewry, Polish American Studies, American Heritage of Invention and Technology, and Minnesota History. In 2006, I received the Oskar Halecki Prize from the Polish American Historical Association for my book Poles in Minnesota.

William Urquhart’s recent doctoral dissertation on school violence and bullying includes ethnographic and statistical studies at a remote Western Alaska village and at an inner-city high school in pre-Katrina New Orleans.  This work emphasizes the importance of social account conversations in defining peer group norms for retaliation in disadvantaged areas, and will soon be published in book form as a monograph.  His other research interests include Alaskan social problems such as alcoholism and domestic violence, and organizational behavior perspectives on workplace violence.  Currently, he is investigating the effect of climatic temperature variation on seasonal domestic violence rate cycles in northern states.  He enjoys teaching distance education classes, and some of his course offerings include Theory and Research in Criminology, Social Psychology, and Alaska Social Problems; Deviant Behavior, Organizational Behavior, and Environmental Sociology.

Bill was born and raised in Ketchikan, following four generations of Alaska commercial fishermen, prospectors, and pioneer women.  His interest in sociology was piqued through his early experiences commercial fishing with his family, where he observed social change affecting the organizational structure of the industry.  Since returning to Alaska from New Orleans in 2002 for dissertation research, Bill has lived in several areas of the state, including time working as an educator and wrestling coach in Western Alaska and in Fairbanks. 

In addition to serving as an instructor at UAS, Bill is an independent consultant to several Alaska school districts, working with student information systems and federal and state data reporting.  Bill also plays the Scottish Great Highland Bagpipes; he is the Lead Bagpiper with Ketchikan’s Misty Thistle Pipes & Drums, and also performs at select solo engagements.  Bill enjoys spending his spare time with his wife Frankie, a science teacher in Ketchikan, and their small children, Liam, Neila, and Torran.

Ketchikan Campus

M.F.A., Northern Michigan University; B.A., University of Michigan. Teague Whalen specializes in creative writing, composition, communication, and literature.

Raised by two passionate educators and two feisty younger sisters, Teague quickly learned that summers meant time to travel America's blue highways and to romp through small towns and national forests by bicycle, canoe, skis, and foot, followed by nights spent sleeping in a tent and usually with close friends in tow. Teague's college teaching ventures have transformed the classroom into kitchens, lakes, mountain tops, and tents when he was a Lecturer I for the University of Michigan's New England Literature Program for two spring terms in rural Maine. While a teaching fellow for Northern Michigan University, he pioneered an outdoor ecocomposition course in the wild Upper Peninsula (U.P.). When he could no longer "Say yeah to the U.P., eh?" he wondered how Alaska compared to the great-lake state. Used to two-tracks and lakes, pine-riddled hills, and weather that could change any minute, he found his mother was right (as a good mother tends to be) when she said that Alaska was like the U.P. on steroids. He has not been disappointed yet, and when he finds Ketchikan raining too much, he keeps his fingers busy composing lofty poems of a bluer heart or stories of longing for a drier hue. When that doesn't work, he takes up his axe planed out of Sitka spruce and gets down to picking away the steel strings in search of a cloudy love song.

I've loved living in Alaska since I first arrived here at the tender age of 2.  I've been blessed to see much of the state having lived in Chugiak, Talkeetna, Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Ketchikan.  The beauty and serenity of this special place we live (even with the large amounts of rain) is inspiring.  After graduating from a little Alaskan high school (we had a graduating class of 18 students) I attended the University of Alaska Fairbanks, graduating with a BA in Business Administration in 1990.  I 've had the pleasure of working with college students for over twenty years and I am inspired by the perseverance of our students as well as the power of education to help students change their lives for the better.
