Congratulations to classmate Maggie ADAIR Upton
A Lifetime Achievement Award was bestowed upon Maggie recently by SARTA (Sacramento Area Regional Theatre Alliance). The following informatio
. . .
I have been engaged as a political scientist and a political activist since I was an undergraduate at Stanford, including joining the student Socialist Caucus. But I was already interested in changing the world at SHS, which sometimes got me in trouble with the administration when I wrote editorials as X-Ray Editor that they didn’t like.
After graduating from Stanford, I did a Ph.D. at UC Berkeley, in political theory and African studies. At UCB I became active in the Free Speech Movement and the anti-war movement, and later women’s liberation. I went to Georgia in the summer and fall of 1965 as a civil rights volunteer with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.
From the mid-60s to mid-70s I was married to Gene Marine, a Senior Editor at Ramparts magazine, and also did some writing for Ramparts. We wrote a book together, Food Pollution: The Violation of Your Inner Ecology, published in 1972.
As an academic, I helped found African women’s studies in the US, starting in 1972 with “Sitting on a man” on a 1929 anti-colonial Women’s War. I taught at UC Berkeley, San Francisco State, San Jose State and UC Davis, did research for a Marxist think tank, wrote about African women and about the feminization of poverty in the U.S., and did African liberation support work.
In 1984 I moved to Ithaca, NY, as an Assistant Professor of Politics at Ithaca College, connected with the local chapter of Democratic Socialists of America, and joined the DSA National Executive Committee. I went as a delegate to the 1986 Socialist International in Lima, Peru, where Sendero Luminoso (Shining Path) was trying (unsuccessfully) to bomb our hotel, and then to Sandinista Nicaragua for a peaceful month.
I left Ithaca College to move to Botswana in January 1987, and for two years worked there with the African National Congress, including running a safe house for Mkonto weSizwe (Spear of the Nation), the armed wing of the ANC. I also worked with and did research on the Botswana women’s movement.
Since 1995 I’ve been a research fellow at the Institute for African Development at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. In 1995 I married Ben Nichols, the “socialist mayor of Ithaca,” and worked with him in local politics. A few years after Ben died in 2007, I got together with an old friend, Al George, and we were married in April 2014. Al has now retired from Cornell after 50 years teaching aerospace, mechanical and systems engineering and 28 years developing and supervising a highly successful FSAE racing car team project.
My daughter Adrian Van Allen, after graduating from Sarah Lawrence College and doing masters’ degrees at the California College of Arts and Crafts, worked at The Exploratorium in San Francisco and is now pursuing a Ph.D. in anthropology at UC Berkeley. This year she is doing doctoral research on a fellowship at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. Her husband, Will Francis, is a software systems designer.
I continue to be busy with research and writing, including a text on African women and politics. I also do organizational work in the Women’s Caucus of the African Studies Association. I live in a wonderful house on the shore of Lake Cayuga, surrounded by trees, gorges, and wildlife, all visible from my study window as I write this. My life has been a great adventure, and I’m still committed after all these years to trying to make life better for others in the world and raise a little hell along the way.
