Dr. Strange's academic trail has led him through Reed College, University of California at Berkeley, San Francisco State, and finally, the University of Pittsburgh. He is grateful to anthropology's tradition of fieldwork for having given him an excuse for playing out his childhood fantasies in the plow furrows, market places, tourist venues, and peasant villages of Mexico and Central America. In a restless and unresigned retirement, he reads fantastic tales to his grandchildren, and teaches courses that remind him how much he has to learn about social and cultural theory. When not pining to return to Mexico and Central America, he does community theatre, works with Thin Air Community Radio, and tries to alchemize his field notes into a dolorous and wistful poetry, feeling he is coming full circle to where he began.
