Eastern History Department remembers one of its own

The Eastern History department is sad to learn of the passing of Thomas P. Anderson, a former History faculty member, who taught here from 1969-1994. Early on, he served in the U.S. Navy, and then got his Ph.D. from Loyola University in Chicago. He published multiple books and articles on 20th century Central American history, testifying at multiple congressional panels on his topic of human rights violations in El Salvador. At Eastern, he also served as chair of the department, was selected a CSU Professor in 1990, and received emeritus status after his retirement.

Our condolences to his family and friends.
