Joel directed UNM's doctoral program in American Studies when I was there 1970-74. I was looking forward to seeing him next week, and am deeply saddened to learn of his death. He was indeed a wonderful teacher, administrator, mentor, and friend. I, too, remember his daughter playing in his office when I talked with him.

I met Joel back in the mid 90's. We were both speaking at an Environmental Seminar in the College Ball Room. I read an excerpt from Loren Eiseley and he had mentioned to me that Eiseley was one of his favorite authors. Joel was the one of the finest presidents Fort Lewis ever had. He will be missed by so many. We have lost a truly fine gentleman.

Joel was a person I admired greatly. In many ways he was a mentor and a role model for me. He was completely dedicated to UNM. In his professorial role he was an excellent teacher and a prolific and profound scholar-writer. Few know about the critical roles he played in his many administrative positions at UNM in keeping the university functioning in times of crisis. The well-being and advancement of students and faculty were always his priorities in making decisions. Even though few know the inside story of Joel's crucial contributions to UNM, his legacy lives on in many of the best aspects of the contemporary University. He was a great man.
