Macon Williams, esteemed professor of Cognitive and Behavioral Psychology for over 30 years and chairman of the Department of Psychology for 6 plus years, retired in December, 1999. For Macon, retirement is an expansion of his life activities. Long a disciple of the liberal arts muse, he finds “much to see, hear, experience, and read about. “I do not see how anyone can get bored!”

During this first portion of retirement, Macon relaxes in travel, exercise, visiting relatives, reading “whatever appeals,” and reflects appreciatively on the students and colleagues who enriched his academic years. Perhaps, in time, Macon will leave what he calls his “vacation mode.” Then again, perhaps not!
