William Cronon

Hey guys,
I was just looking up William Cronon's biography to see what more I could learn about him. The thing I found most interesting in his biography was actually the fact that in 1992, at the University of Wisconsin Madison he became the Frederick Jackson Turner professor of History, Geography, and Environmental studies. I just thought this was really neat considering his rather critical view of Turner's "Frontier hypothesis." I guess this just goes to show how people can be unexpectedly connected. If anyone is more interested in his biography the link is:
