Sad News: Floyd O'Neil

We learned this morning of the death of our friend and colleague, Floyd O'Neil. Floyd was a respected high school teacher and university professor, but is probably best known for his prolific work at the American West Center at the University of Utah, where he directed the Doris Duke American Indian Oral History Project as well as editing and directing a number of tribal histories. He was a beloved figure in Western history circles, and was honored with (among others) a "Floyd Festchrift" and the Western History Association Award of Merit. We will publish a more complete obituary.
