Thread Name: BS: Fire Ward Churchill
Subject: RE: BS: Fire Ward Churchill
This remark was posted on one of my scholarly lists by a professor I've worked with in the past and whose opinion I respect. I've set up the links that were scattered through an email he posted.


Another friend sent two sources regarding Churchill's identity:

Reporter's Notebook: Controversial CU professor stretches truth
http://www.billingsgazette.com/index.php?display=rednews/2005/02/06/build/nation/67-reporters-notebook.inc

These links are provided by people who are more active in the field than I've been for a while, so it's looking like Churchill's chicken is cooked, but from the academic end of things and not from the tribal end of things. Plagiarism will knock an academic down faster than just about anything else in academia.
