Henry "Mac" McCarthy
Henry McCarthy was born in 1927 in Mt. Vernon, New York. After graduating from high school at the end of WWII, Henry moved from one job to another - a stint in the Coast Guard, commercial shrimp fishing, and time spent working as a carpenter - which eventually brought him to Florida where he discovered his love for boat-building. Henry recently talked with one of his canoe-building students, friend Dorsay Fischer, at his home in Sarasota. Henry detailed some of the events that led to his passion for hand-built canoes, and how the hobby-turned-occupation has helped him overcome some of his darker days.

Dr. Daniel Yeh, USF College of Engineering assistant professor and research fellow at the USF Patel Center for Global Solutions, says there's a number of advantages to USF's relationship with the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education.

Dr. Yeh talks about some of the things the USF students have seen on their summer trip to the Netherlands.

Once he gets back from the Netherlands, USF Environmental Engineering Graduate Student Duncan Peabody is headed to the Dominican Republic to work with the Peace Corps for the next 2 years.

USF Global Health PhD Candidate Wendy Mussoline talks about the research she's doing at UNESCO on anaerobic digestion.

USF Senior Robert Bair talks about how his experiences have led him to major in both Environmental Science and International Studies, and then shares a rather hilarious Dutch language lesson.
