Best known as a central figure of the Myth and Symbol School of American studies scholarship, Ward was one of the few university presidents during the Vietnam era to participate in direct activism against the escalation of conflict in Southeast Asia, and was the only university president to be arrested for doing so. His decision to protest the war was informed by his basic view of history and the role of American mythologies in American life, including and most importantly the mythology of absolute freedom and equality implied by Jeffersonian democracy. For Ward, history was made when individuals put their ideals into action, and for this reason Ward spent much of his career exploring contradictions in ideology, especially emphasizing the contradiction between the individual's freedom to act in socially responsible manner and the increasing bureaucratization of life that limited the possibility of such action. His most well known book, ''Andrew Jackson: Symbol of An Age'' treats Andrew Jackson as a symbol embodying 19th century ideology. Other figures who Ward treated as symbolic of contradictions in America's myths about itself include John F. Kennedy, Henry David Thoreau, Charles Lindbergh, and the Anarchist activist Alexander Berkman. thumb left Natural Distribution of the Burmese Python (green) and the Indian Python (Image:Natural Range of Python molurus6.jpg) (red) and interference area (yellow).

(File:Patsajakvideoform.jpg)Sajak won a contest on WLS radio (WLS (AM))'s ''Dick Biondi Show'' to be a guest teen deejay. While at Columbia College Chicago, his broadcasting instructor Al Parker told him that a local radio station (WEDC) was looking for a newsman. Sajak applied for the job and was hired to work from midnight to 6:00 AM (12-hour clock). In 1968, Sajak joined the U.S. Army (United States Army), and was sent to Vietnam, where he served as a disk jockey on Armed Forces Radio (American Forces Network). In the early 1970s, he began DJ'ing at 50,000-watt WSM (WSM (AM)) in Nashville (Nashville, Tennessee); at the time WSM was playing pop music during the day, and Sajak was the 3:00–5:00pm afternoon personality. The radio station's television sister, WSM-TV (now WSMV), brought Sajak on screen, first as a voiceover artist doing station identifications and anchoring the five-minute newscasts during NBC's ''Today Show (Today (NBC program))'', then as a weekend and substitute weatherman, where he became acquainted with anchor Dan Miller (Dan Miller (journalist)). In 1977, KNBC-TV in Los Angeles was looking for a weatherman, and spotted Sajak working in Nashville. Sajak accepted KNBC's request for him to be a full-time weatherman for the station. thumb right Sajak on the ''Wheel of Fortune'' set (File:Pat-Sajak.jpg) notes The '''Ten Great Campaigns''' ( Commons:Category:Vietnam
