submitted a proposal to the
Texas Goordinating Board for
higher education that officially
would create a department of
anthropology — splitting it from
the sociology department.

and anthropology department
into two separate budget
accounts. This gave the anthro
pology program more freedom
over its curriculum. In 1976, the
anthropology program received
approval to offer a master's
