William's current research aftempts to extend the experimentaland theoretical analy sis of
social behavior to complex human social behavior in naturalisticfield settings. I n the laffer
context, he is studying human attitudes and behavior withrespect to sexuality, to f amily
planning (deciding on a preferred family size), to factorsdetermining the acceptabi lity of

line of research recently undertaken concerns identifying socialpsychological and p ersonal

************************************************************************************
My own family research (William Marvin Wiest) indicates thatour Wiest forebears left for Russia in about
1830 from somewhere in southern Germany perhaps nearGermerscheim in
Rheinland-Pfalz, or from Wuerttemberg They were among thoseresponding to an
earlier invitation by Catherine the Great, Czarina of Russia,for Germans and oth er
western Europeans to settle in Russia. My grandfather,Friedrich Karl Wiest cam e to
the United States (Colorado) in 1908 from one of severalhundred German
settlements in Russia and Ukraine. The village he left fromwas Friedrichsfeld, n ear
Stavropol in the North Caucasus of Russia, though he had beenborn in the German
village of Rohrbach near Odessa, Ukraine. One sister,Elizabeth Wiest Croissant a lso
emigrated to North America; she and her family settled in anarea near Medicine H at,
Albeita. Most of my grandfather Wiest's brothers and sisters(Konrad, Wilhelm, Jakob,
Edward, Katerina, and Filbiena) stayed in Russia.

Unfortunately, during the early period of the Stalin regime,our family in North
America lost all contact with our family in Russia. In 1928,my grandfather was a sked
by his brothers and sisters there to not send letters orpackages; such communica tion
from abroad created political troubles for them. Sixty yearslater, in 1988, I ha d the
good fortune of finding our remaining Wiest family in Russiaand Kazakhstan. You
may know that almost all ethnic Germans in Russia and Ukrainewere exiled from
their homes in 1941, and sent to forced labor camps inSiberia and in central Asi a.
How any of them managed to survive is a marvelous story initself. For now I'l l say
that I've discovered many of my Wiest relatives (firstcousins of my father, an d their
offspring) scattered widely over the former Soviet Union,from Khabarovsk to Mosc ow
and from Murmansk to Tashkent. Now there is a great movementby many of them
who hope to be able to resettle in Germany as 'Aussiedler."
