Passing of beloved UNLV colleague Richard Brooks

Although Richard and Sheilagh Brooks had long retired from UNLV, they have remained friends of UNLV-NFA and we mourn Richard's passing, which was announced this afternoon.

We are deeply saddened to inform the UNLV community of Dr. Richard Brooks' death, Thursday evening, June 23, 2011. Richard, as many of you will remember, was our Emeritus Professor of Anthropology, whose retirement, some years ago, now, followed the death of his beloved wife, Sheilagh Brooks, also Emeritus Professor of Anthropology. In 1987, Sheilagh Brooks was the recipient of the very first UNLV Distinguished Professor award and title. The Department of Anthropology invites friends and colleagues of Richard and Sheilagh Brooks to a memorial reception in celebration of both of their lives and distinguished careers on Sept. 1, 2011, at 3:00, in the Sheilagh Brooks Research Laboratory, Wright Hall. We will have additional details available as we draw closer to the Brooks' memorial celebration. In the meanwhile, additional information may be sought through the Department of Anthropology's office, 895 3590.
