UNDATED (WSAU) A long-time professor at Beloit College has died, after he fell in South America during a student research trip. Dan Shea, an anthropology professor, died Tuesday after he fell in Chile. That’s where he and five Beloit students have been for almost two weeks.
College spokesman Jason Hughes said the group was planning to stay in the country until next Wednesday – but arrangements are being made to bring everyone home as soon as possible. Shea was a member of the Beloit College faculty for 44 years.
