A&M's Arnold gets award for research


The Eagle
May 24, 2006

A Texas A&M University professor has received a special commendation from the Texas Legislature for his "pioneering work in shipwreck excavation."

James Arnold III of the Institute of Nautical Archaeology, based at Texas A&M University, received the commendation earlier this month. The resolution said that Arnold "has been at the forefront of efforts to research, discover and preserve the archaeological heritage of Texas," and that he should be recognized for "his efforts to preserve our state's past for future generations."

Arnold has been the Texas State Marine Archaeologist for 22 years and has participated in finding several shipwrecks in the Gulf of Mexico. He also helped pass the Abandoned Shipwreck Act of 1987, which gives states the right to title of abandoned shipwrecks in their coastal waters.
