Mackey is a social scientist who has researched topics in anthropology, criminal justice and criminology, psychology, and sociology in his academic and professional career. He also co-authored the 2000 book Gender Roles, Traditions and Generations to Come: The Collision of Competing Interests and the Feminist Paradox with Nancy S. Coney for Nova Science Publishing. One of his widely cited criminal justice articles is "Police Violence as a Function of Community Characteristics," (with Dr. Richard R. E. Kania) which appeared in Criminology in 1977. He revisited the topic in 2009 with Dr. Vance McLaughlin in an article in Criminal Justice Studies, “Police-Caused Homicides in the U.S. as a Function of Community Characteristics: Revisiting a Set of Relationships from a Previous Generation.” In both studies he and his colleagues demonstrated strong correlations between police decision-making in deadly-force situations and features of the communities the police served. His article, “Violent Crime and the Loss of Fathers: Beyond the Long Arm,” was included in a collection prepared by anthropologist Myrdene Anderson, The Cultural Shaping of Violence, Purdue University Press, 2004. He has been a frequent contributor to Mankind Quarterly, often co-authoring articles with psychiatrist Dr. Ronald S. Immerman. Together they have explored some of the psychological aspects of human social evolution and cultural development. The common thread to his work has been the proposition that the role of the father in child development is far more important than is usually supposed or credited in contemporary family studies (Mackey and Mackey 2003). Showing empirically that growing up fatherlessness often has dire social consequences for children, he has challenged the social desirability of social policies which sustain and even reward single-parent family arrangements. This has set him at odds with some feminist scholars and his work has been deemed “politically incorrect” in their circles (Kania and Mackey 1983; Mackey and Coney, 2000). Dr. Mackey earned his B. A. in Anthropology and Sociology at the University of Virginia in 1967, the M.A. in Psychology from Louisiana State University in 1970, and the Ph.D. in Anthropology at the University of Virginia in 1976 (Vita – Wade C. Mackey, 2008). He taught for the Department of Criminal Justice at Jacksonville State University of Alabama between 2007 and 2009 before retiring. Since his retirement he has lived in Wilton, Iowa. Mackey also taught for Cy-Fair College in Cypress, Texas; North Harris College in Houston, Texas; Tomball College in Tomball, Texas; the University of Arkansas at Monticello, Arkansas; Southeastern Community College in West Burlington, Iowa; El Paso Community College and the Army’s Sergeant-Major’s Academy in El Paso, Texas; Iowa Wesleyan College in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa; Tarkio College in Tarkio, Missouri; South Dakota State University in Brookings, South Dakota; Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond Virginia; School of Continuing Education of the University of Virginia and the Piedmont Community College in Charlottesville, Virginia; the Louisiana State University at Eunice, La.; and Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana (Vita – Wade C. Mackey, 2008). He has been the recipient of three Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation research grants, in 1977, 1980 and 1989, and was the 1985 Chadwick Distinguished Teacher of the Year at Iowa Wesleyan College. In 1974 he received a National Science Foundation research grant to study adult-child behavior in public places. He has done extensive field research in Iceland in 1977, Ireland in 1980, Mexico in 1975 and Spain in 1974, and directed field research projects on adult-child interaction in Austria (1986), Kenya (1986), France, (1986), Great Britain (1986), Brazil (1977, 1981), Taiwan (1980), Israel (1980), Japan (1977), Hong Kong (1979), Morocco (1977), India (1978), Peru (1976), Sri Lanka (1982), and Ivory Coast (1977, 1981) (Vita – Wade C. Mackey, 2008). Born in 1946 in New Jersey, Wade C. Mackey has developed close attachments to Virginia, Iowa and Texas in his career and private life. He married Bonnie Lee Watson of Norfolk, Virginia in 1969, and they had three children, Shannon, Jennifer and Michael. They divorced in 1995 while residing in Texas. She continues to do cooperative research with him (Mackey and Mackey, 2003; 2009) and is an associate professor of education at the University of Houston–Clear Lake. Sources Kania , Richard R.
