Dr. Richard Kellogg Author of Article

Dr.
Richard Kellogg, professor of psychology at Alfred State College, is the author
of an article appearing in the most recent issue of Paperback Parade, a
quarterly magazine published by Gryphon Books of Brooklyn.  Titled "Philip
Wylie's Final Dream," the article notes that author Philip Wylie
(1902-1971) was writing about global warming, contamination of our air and
water, and the grave risks of nuclear power long before these issues reached
public consciousness.

Wylie's major theme in
several of his books is that attempts to manipulate nature through modern
technology may actually result in a series of unexpected disasters and the
destruction of our natural environment.  He often wrote about mutated
microbes, a poisoned water supply, and the risk of nuclear plants getting out
of control.  Kellogg notes that Wylie deserves much credit for helping to
lead the environmental movement in this country.

Dr. Kellogg joined the
Alfred State faculty in 1970 after completing doctoral studies at the
University of Rochester.  He is the author of three books on Sherlock
Holmes and is a frequent contributor to popular magazines and professional
journals.
