The first chair for American Indian studies in the University of California system has been inaugurated at UC Riverside. The Rupert Costo Chair in American Indian History is the first of its kind in the nation to be entirely financed by native Americans, UC Riverside officials said. Florence C. Shipek, 68, an anthropologist at the University of Wisconsin, Parkside, has been appointed to the post. The position was established under a $400,000 endowment raised by Indian activists Rupert Costo, and his wife, Jeanette, through the American Indian Historical Society.
