C Program is an interdisciplinary program providing students an opportunity to explore humans’ relationship to wilderness and civilization, and includes faculty from wilderness management, ecology, philosophy, Native American studies, economics, creative writing, and others. The program begins each fall with a 10-12 day backpack trip, combining outdoor skills with education. Bob often described how students’ inhibitions dissolved during the trip, which stimulated lively class discussions once they returned to their traditional classroom settings. Thousands of students studied with Bob during his tenure at UM, in courses such as resource conservation, large mammal conservation, wildlife ecology and management, habitat management, and wilderness management, and Bob helped launch the careers of many talented conservationists. Bob capped his UM career as Acting Dean of the School of Forestry from 1993-1994.Bob was passionately involved in politics. He served in the Montana Legislature as a representative from Missoula from 1983-1997, where he distinguished himself on fish and game, taxation, and natural resource issues, sponsoring Montana’s stream access law, mini-Superfund law, and restitution payments for illegally taken wildlife, among others. Bob served as Chair of the Montana Democratic Party from 1997-2005, a period in which the Party saw significant electoral gains at the legislative and statewide levels.    Bob’s other professional accomplishments incl...

Alex Tizon, former Seattle Times reporter who won Pulitzer Prize, dies at 57 - The Seattle Times

Monday, March 27, 2017

Mr. Tizon’s editor for two years at The Seattle Times, echoed others who said his death was a loss to the journalism community. She recalled Mr. Tizon as “an almost philosopher essayist” in his approach, and that the paper would send him on stories that were complex and needed to be told at a deeper level than the standard news story.A day after Sept. 11, 2001, for instance, the paper sent Mr. Tizon and photographer Alan Berner out for a series of several lengthy vignettes from various parts of the country that chronicled how communities were coping with the fallout of the terror attacks.“We need more people doing the kind of work he learned how to do, telling those authentic, true stories, rather than just race-and-chase journalism,” Banaszynski said.Mr. Tizon had a profound impact on other reporters, as well.Lisa Heyamoto remembers starting out as a summer intern at The Seattle Times in 2001, sitting at the desk across from Mr. Tizon.“I was just this flush-faced kid and was so hungry to get better and Alex paid attention to my work, and gave me feedback and clarified a lot of things for journalism for me at a time when I was really hungry and really impressionable,” Heyamoto said. “It made a huge impact on me, and I never forgot it.”Heyamoto, who later got full-time reporting jobs at The Seattle Times and The Sacramento Bee and worked alongside Mr. Tizon when the two were instructors at Oregon, said that whenever she got writer’s block she would reread a 2000 story by Mr. Tizon called “Thom Jones and the Cosmic Joke,” about a former school janitor in Lacey who became a celebrated but tortured writer. It turned a fairly simple story into a broader piece about suffering and life choices.“It reminded me of what you can do with a seemingly small story. He can tell this unsung story, and that’s a service to journalism, and a service to humanity,” said Heyamoto. “I modeled myself after him.”As a professor, his colleagues said he ditched the PowerPoint-and-lecture style and simply got up and told stories.He had a deep interest in fight clubs and boxing, and was an avid outdoorsman.His family was in Eugene on Saturday...
