Colón and Colonialism

Abstract

A number of readers have pointed out that an egregious error was made in my introduction to the July-August issue on the Quincentennial, where it says (on page 2) that, "The nature of the encounter was a colonial one (a word derived from Colon or Columbus) .... " This was a mistake since the Latin word "colonia" dates back to Roman times.
