IN MEMORIAM VAN RICK MCDANIEL (1945-2009)
Information taken from the CNAH website - (broken, http://www.cnah.org/news.asp)
Van Rick McDaniel, former Professor of Zoology and Senior Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, passed away on 31 July 2009 at St. Bernard's Medical Center. He is survived by his wife, Peggy McDaniel, two sisters, Sherry and Betty, three sons, Nathaniel, Jonathan, and Zachary, five daughters, Kimberly, Lana, Catherine, Stacey, and Cynthia, and numerous grandchildren. Born on 29 October 1945, Rick received his Bachelor of Science Degree in biology and chemistry (1967), and Masters Degree in biology and geology (1969), both at Texas A&I University, and his Doctorate in zoology and paleontology in 1973 from Texas Tech University in Lubbock. He began his academic career as an assistant professor of zoology at Arkansas State University in 1973, and remained at that institution until his retirement as an administrator 35 years later. Although primarily a mammalogist, Rick maintained a steady interest in amphibians, reptiles, and turtles throughout his distinguished career, publishing a total of 22 papers on them during the span from 1969-1999. He chaired or served on the committees of many students that studied herpetofauna, and some of them went on to academic careers in herpetology, most notably Chris T. McAllister, Brian Butterfield, and Walter E. Mashaka, Jr. As an administrator at Arkansas State University, he was responsible for bringing to the faculty the well-known and distinguished herpetologist, Stanley Trauth.
