Emeritus Professor Recognized for Decades
of Contributions

RELEASED: Jan. 21, 2005

EAU CLAIRE — J. Kenneth Davidson, professor emeritus of sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, was named a 2004 National Council of Family Relations Fellow at that organization's annual conference held in November in Orlando, Fla.

Davidson and six others were nominated by their peers and chosen by the NCFR's Fellowship Committee in recognition of their history of outstanding contributions to the field of family studies.

Davidson, who retired in August 2004, was coordinator of family studies at UW-Eau Claire. The NCFR recognized Davidson for his nearly four decades of research and scholarly activities in a wide range of topics relating to human sexuality and family interaction, including, in recent years, his work on sexual attitudes and behaviors among college students. His latest co-edited book, "Speaking of Sexuality," has been described by colleagues as one of the best collection of articles on the topic currently available.

NCFR also acknowledged their debt to Davidson for his years of leadership in the development and implementation of their Certified Family Life Educator Program. In 2003, NCFR honored Davidson by naming him co-recipient of the Ernest G. Osborne Award for Excellence in Teaching Family Studies.
