Jim Bogan, Curators’ Teaching Professor of art, languages and philosophy, is not only the resident hammock expert at Missouri S&T (he made a movie about them). He’s also one of the nation’s most knowledgeable people when it comes discussing the swinging lounge. The Los Angeles Times has taken notice, and quotes Bogan extensively in a recent tribute to the hammock, Centuries later, the hammock is still swinging. "The hammock lives on, Bogan said by phone from his home in Rolla, Mo., ‘because no one’s ever invented anything better. And no one ever will.’"
