Welcome to Tony Hill's Home Page

You are visitor number - CELEBRATING 100,000 HITS! - OCT. 21, 1999

Thanks for stopping by my web page. This site has been online since 1995. Some of the material on here is also that old! Since 2001, I've been concentrating on becoming a political science professor, first by getting a masters degree from the University of Minnesota, and since 2004, by working on a Ph.D. at MIT. So, I haven't had much time to add material to this site, although I occasionally delete dead and obsolete links. You can read the e-mail I sent home from my long trip in Canada and Alaska in the fall of 1996. I've added a page of links to my favorite national park. My "fun and interesting links" page has been incorporated into this page. It used to be frequently updated. Have a great and fulfilling time!

These links have been tested and are all working as of June 2006. (But that was 6 years ago!)
