West Texas professor publishes articles on geography of Big Bend
Sul Ross State University
ALPINE, TEXAS - Dr. Paul Wright, Sul Ross State University associate professor of geography and sociology, recently published the first of a four-part series in the Desert Candle.
The first installment of "The Development of the Big Bend: 1848-1929" appeared in the Spring 2007 issue.
Wright has published many articles on the early history of the Big Bend in scholarly journals, notably The Journal of Big Bend Studies. Much of the research for these articles was distilled for his first article on the Big Bend to appear in a popular publication. Photos for the article were provided by the Archives of the Big Bend, located in the Wildenthal Library at Sul Ross.
The Desert Candle features articles, poetry, art displays and photos on the Big Bend. It is published by The Desert Mountain Institute, Inc.
