Correction: In our October 8 story on the appointment of Dr. Herman Beavers as head of Afro-American Studies, Almanac used incomplete source materials resulting in an error and two omissions, all of which we regret. Dr. Beavers is a former faculty fellow of Hill House, not a current one. Dr. Vivian Gadsden, associate professor of education at GSE, should have been cited as co-author on his book-in-progress ( In Our Fathers' Image, In Our Mothers' Hearts); and it should be noted that one of his books in print, Wrestling Angels into Song: The Fictions of Ernest J. Gaines and James Alan McPherson, is from the University of Pennsylvania Press. -- K.C.G.
