Long-time Webster University Professor Don Corrigan released his book, “Environmental Missouri Issues and Sustainability — What You Need to Know.” According to his website, Corrigan has written four books, all relating to either journalism or the environment.
Corrigan’s new book is described by Webster Today as “the first comprehensive guide to local and state environmental issues involving the air we breathe, the water we drink and the land we inhabit in the Show-Me State.”
In Corrigan’s “Environmental Missouri Issues and Sustainability,” he addresses environmental issues such as pollution, contamination, radioactive waste and other environmental issues.
Webster Today said the last chapter of the new book presents options for sustainability and shows how Missourians are making changes to save the environment.
Corrigan has taught at Webster for more than 30 years.
Corrigan has won many awards during his time as both a journalist and a professor. Among these are a Messing Research Award, the Kemper Outstanding Teacher Award and the Presidential Faculty Scholar Award.
Corrigan served as advisor of The Journal from 1978 – 2010 and has held editorships at local St. Louis publications. He is currently the editor at the Webster-Kirkwood Times and the South County Times.
Don Corrigan will have a presentation and book signing from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 in the East Academic Building, Room 102.
