Tom Claflin, Professor emeritus, was a professor (and department chair) of Biology at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse. During his tenure at UW-La Crosse, Tom took a part-time leave of absence for two years to work with the Washington DC law firm (Brown and Roady) as a consultant in several litigations dealing with large river systems in the United States. He is the co-founder of the Mississippi River Research Consortium and former president of the North American Benthological Society. In 200, Tom retired and has been working with Habitat for Humanity for the past seven years and currently serves as board president for the La Crosse Area affiliate of HfH. He currently studies the river from his small boat with a fishing rod, birding binoculars, often a good book, and his grandchildren when he's really fortunate.
