bottlenecks in U.S.-Mexican interaction were warmly accepted by the group.
For example, to reduce the need for Mexicans to pass through U.S. Immigration and Customs controls merely to use the U.S. Postal Services, Gil Díaz offered and U.S. Postal authorities agreed to establish a pilot U. S. Post Office in Mexico. Mexican foreign relations authorities led by Eduardo Ibarrola (Director General of the Mexican Consular Corps) and immigration authorities led by Javier Zenteno and Raul Solórzano (Advisors of Mexico’s National Migration Institute) agreed to streamline visas as well as create a new academic visa. Sometime later, I said to George Baker: “Where was Sami when we need him in Caborca.” (See Part “M,” above.)
I will always remember Sami’s role in working with Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) to award me a series of UNAM Medals:
• 1982 Medal “Academia de San Carlos,” Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), “For Having Developed the Concept of Elitelore.”
• 1984 UNAM Medal of Honor, “For Major Studies in Oral history and Public Expenditure.”
• 1985 Medal Commemorating UNAM Autonomy Since 1929, “For Twenty Years of Innovative Research.”
The 1985 article that appeared early that day in the Gaceta de UNAM, was splendid except it got the daily headline wrong when it announced that my 1985 Medal would mark my 50th year of teaching and research—it should have said 50th birthday coming up in 1986.
When, as Sami walked to and for on the UNAM campus, many professors stopped to salute me and usually said: “You look quite young to have been teaching for 50 years.” As Sami tried to correct the impact of erroneous campus newspaper headline, he always quietly elbowed me to pass his amusement on to me. We laughed out load later. I said: “Sami, you should include this joke in a forthcoming book or article on academic jokes! Or did you tell the Gaceta to in this case to play a “practical joke” on me?”

But it wasn’t tears of laughter which came to my eyes, but gratitude to Sami for the statements in his article for this Homenaje about the impacts I have had on his academic life. Forgive me for not having realized earlier, but we usually took for granted our close personal and academic relationship. Usually a “wink of the eye” confirmed where we stood, no?
Sami, as I tacitly suggested above in my remembrances of the El Paso-Juárez Project as of 1993, it is only fitting that I thank you expressly now here in the Juárez of 2016, for having been my “Virtual Co-CE0” for the successful completion of what the Ford Foundation called our path-breaking Model for Academia as well as for the Policy Recommendations for this El Paso-Juárez area of cross-border words.
Sami, also let me thank you for the impact you have had on my life and academic career!
What is more, let me thank all of my close friends here at the Event and beyond for what I learned from each of you.
I could not have accomplished so much without the backing and help of all you.
What us the big question remaining: “Indeed, who am I?” I ask myself after having spent two wonderful days (May 16-17, 2016) in Juárez at the Homenaje that Sami organized in my honor. In hearing from former students (now my colleagues) as well as from my professional colleagues with whom, together, we have developed projects and conferences, written articles and books, as well as received grants and reported our findings.
Now that I look back in this focused way, “How did I accomplish so much in only 50 years yet know that I have so much more to do?
In reality, I was fortunate to get through many “closing doors” as the United States moved toward the massification of schooling and of academia. I did not have to be a great student in Boise, Idaho, Schools. I had been accustomed to start each year to arrive well after school had started (and well before school closed in the Spring)

because I spent summers with my parents and Brother Dick (1945- 1952) helping to run our mile-high mountain resort at North Shore Lodge on Warm Lake, at the edge of the Idaho Primitive Area. All my teachers realized I used each summer to read more books and news articles than any student did in two years.
My teachers were quite happy to leave me to learn on my own. My own motto as I grew up in Idaho was: “Read widely and look for opportunities which cannot be foreseen, then when the moment arises, step into the gap that holds most observers blinded or too timid to act.”
My second motto was “Ask questions” and remember there are always many “next questions” to be asked, as well as ”why?”
I knew that my real education would come in college, and there I was never faced with taking a “required course.”
Indeed, when I read the MCC Catalog, I realized that I was able to design my own flexible major to obtain my B.A. in Social Sciences. With my experience in Mexico and Central America, Berkeley was pleased to waive most courses, and send me back to Mexico to
conduct my PHD research.
When I received the Bolton Prize in my second year as
Assistant Professor at Ohio State University (OSU) and had offers to move to two State University of New York campuses (Stony Brook and Buffalo) as Associate Professor at each, I met with my OSU Dean of Social Sciences to request that I be promoted to OSU Associate Professor. He said “Jim, why do you want to be promoted to tenure so quickly?” My response: “...to know if I am going to stay here at OSU or not.” At that point he said “Well that is a great answer. Congratulations, I am signing your promotion papers when my staff has them ready by early afternoon.”
The first elitelorist faces folklorists who believe that he is traying to “steal their thunder”
Edie and I told Dick about the 1967 Folklore and Social Science Conference at the Wenner-Gran Foundation in New York City.

There I first offered my idea of Elitelore to a huge Meeting Hall filled only by men and Edie as the one woman (and obviously a pregnant woman, as if flaunting some unknown code) who had dared to enter a “men- only-academic affair.” My paper had been distributed to each academic, and the whole group was hostile to me even before I got up to deliver it in person, except one, or perhaps, two people.
First, I knew that I had in my corner Edie,24 who had grown up in Guatemala and
