SoA Professor Emeritus Stephen L. Zegura passed away on May 26, 2019, at the age of 75. Dr. Zegura joined what was then the Anthropology Department of University of Arizona in Fall 1972 and taught physical anthropology and human genetics there for over forty years. Described as a “consummate scholar and unwaveringly loyal colleague,” he received the 2009–2010 Raymond H. Thompson Award for contributions he made to the SoA throughout his distinguished career. Dr. Zegura will long be remembered by his students for the inspiration, challenges, and support he gave them.
A scholarship has been created to honor Dr. Zegura's memory.
