…getting pleasure from reading the obituaries…

Department of Corrections
In the February/03 issue the editors committed several errors that require correction. In both the cover story and the editor’s notes we referred to the late Robert Braidwood, PhD’43, as director emeritus of the Oriental Institute. Although Braidwood was for many decades a central figure in the life of the OI (see “Deaths,”), he never held that post.

In an “Investigations” piece on Chapin Hall Center director Mark Courtney’s studies of foster care (“Fostering a New System”), we wrote that “Forty percent [of the foster children in Courtney’s study] said a primary caregiver abused drugs or alcohol, 14 percent said a caregiver had a mental illness, 18 percent said a caregiver had engaged in domestic violence, and 10 percent said a caregiver had spent time in prison.” The percentages given actually referred to the children’s birth parents.

In reporting on the January 13 forum on civility (“Chicago Journal,” ), we misidentified the panelist presenting the Islamic approach to civility. Rasheed Hosein, AM’01, a doctoral candidate in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations studying early Islamic history, was the speaker. And in the “Letters” section we misspelled the name of F. M. Brunemeier, MD’55. We regret the errors.
