Recycling takes off

SFSU is three years ahead of schedule in its recycling goals, according to Norcal Waste Systems Inc. In 1998-1999, the campus recycled about 29 percent of the waste it produced. By the end of 2000, that number rose to 50 percent.

In addition to beverage containers and paper products, SFSU recycles cardboard, wood pallets, yard trimmings, food waste and kitchen grease, toner cartridges, scrap metals and other materials.

Fulbright award recipients

Several members of the SFSU community have received Fulbright awards for the 2001-2002 award period.

Philip M. Prinz, Special Education, received a Fulbright Scholar Award to conduct research in Sweden during the 2001-2002 academic year. Prinz will complement research on American Sign Language and English literacy by examining the relationship between literacy skills in Swedish sign language and written Swedish. The project is a collaborative effort directed by Prinz and Dr. Kristina Svartholm, who holds an academic chair in Swedish as a Second Language for the Deaf at Stockholm University.

Dane Johnson, World and Comparative Literature, received a five-month Fulbright Award to Spain to pursue archival work for his project "Franco's Censors, Barcelona's Publishers, and the Latin American 'Boom.'" Johnson will be in Madrid from September through January.

CampusMemo would like to hear from other faculty or staff members who have received Fulbright awards for 2001-2002. Please call EXT 8-1665 or e-mail information to

In memoriam: Edward O. Hascall

Edward O. Hascall, former director of Counseling and Psychological Services and associate professor of education, died of heart failure May 15 at his vacation home in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. He was 78.

Hascall, who lived in San Francisco, retired from SFSU in 1986 after 20 years of service to the University.

"I remember Ed as a deeply caring man who never hesitated to help when asked or to share his years of professional experience and wisdom with us," said Kevin Bowman, director of Counseling and Psychological Services and associate vice president of student affairs. "He will be greatly missed."

At Hascall's request, no funeral or memorial services were held.
