Lethbridge: Trevor Harrison

lethbridge: He was a really interesting guy, very well read, very much a scholar, according to CBC. He had a quite eclectic set of interests from economics, politics, very much the environment, he was a very well-rounded sociologist, Harrison said. Trevor Harrison is a professor of sociology at the University of Lethbridge and sponsored Seyed-Emami when he came to the southern Alberta post-secondary institution on sabbatical from August to mid-December of last year. I think any of the number of us who had the occasion to meet him while he was over here are all feeling like it's a very big loss.'- Trevor Harrison, University of Lethbridge And I have to say, just a really nice gentleman. Seyed-Emami, 63, was a professor of sociology at Imam Sadeq University in Tehran and the managing director of the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation, which seeks to protect Iran's rare animals. He was a warm and engaging individual, very kind and just a wonderful person to meet. ( As reported in the news.
