Professor Emeritus Charles Wigley was named a Distinguished Research Fellow by the Eastern Communication Association at its 114th annual convention. Award presenter Dr. Jordan Atkinson highlighted that one of Wigley’s coauthored articles has been cited over “eleven hundred times.” Committee members considered his research record and overall contributions to the organization, the wide impact of his research on verbal aggressiveness, the use of his academic research on jury selection by law firms in the United States and England, and his conceptual articles on the proper use of some complex statistical protocols.
