Russell Fitzgibbon
Visiting Political Science
Writes Book On Uruguay
By BARBARA CLARK
Assistant Editor
Russell H. Fitzgibbon, visiting
instructor in the department of
political science at the Univer
sity, might well be considered
an authority on Latin America
judging from his many trips to
South America and from his re
cently published book, "Uru
guay, Portrait of a Democracy "
Fitzgibbon's book has been de
scribed as an informal suney
of the "Switzerland of South
America," and provides the-f'rst
complete general survey of Uru
guay. The country, a conscious
and . intelligent exponent of
democracy, has been largely
overlooked, perhaps because of
her location between the much
larger and stronger countries of
Argentina and Brazil.
AS AN instructor in the po
litical science department at the
Los Angeles campus of the Uni
versity of California, much of
Fitzgibbons' work deals with
Latin American policies, govern
ment and international relations.
The University of California
stresses the position of the Latin
American neighbors in geog
raphy, history, political science
and Spanish courses.
The Hoosier State is Fitzgib
bon's home and he did his un
dergraduate work at Hanover
College in southern Indiana. He
received his Master of Arts De
gree from the University of Jn
diana and his Doctor's Degree
from the University of Wiscon
sin. FITZGIBBON has spent much
time in Latin America. In 1943-
THE MAIN entrance of the
dormitories is on 15th St. facing
T. St. The central mail and
switchboard service and busi
ness offices will be located in
that building, along with the of
fice of the Residence Halls di
rector and the apartment of the
residence advisor and his wife.
A large carpeted lounge will be
located near the entrance.
The dining room, which will
have facilities for 900 students,
extends back from the main en
trance building into the square
inclosed by the six dorm units.
A special feature of the dining
room is double food service,
which allows for two cafeteria
lines to be served at one time.
THE DINING room will be
decorated on one side by large
photographic murals and on two
sides by ceiling to floor drapes
covering the windows. A smaller
dining room is located to one
side of the main dining room.
The kitchen contains areas for
steam tables, ovens, a walk-in
cooler for meats and vegetables
and one for dairy foods and
automatic dishwashers. A sep
arate dining room for employees
will be located off the kitchen.
Bedrooms have been painted
in six different pastel shades and
the tile floors in the rooms are
in three colors. Hall floors are
all green tile.
