Shefound it.By Globe Staff | February 21, 2010This story was reported by Meghan E. Irons, Eric Moskowitz, Michael Rezendes, Peter Schworm,and Stephen Smith of the Globe staff. It was written by Smith.HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Eric Seemann ran into Amy Bishop one day last spring on the University of Alabama at Huntsville campus, where the faculty takes pride in creating a collegial academiccocoon. They’d developed a bond over the years, starting as junior professors together in 2003and chatting from time to time about the triumphs and frustrations of the research life.Seemann knew Bishop could be aloof and opinionated to the point of abrasiveness. But on thisday, there was something different. She seethed.The dean’s list of newly tenured professors had come out, a list that can seal a researcher’sprofessional fate. Seemann’s name was on it. Bishop’s wasn’t.“ ‘These people are against me,’ ’’ Seemann, a psychology professor, recalls Bishop sayingbefore launching into a rant against the tenure process. “I listened politely, but I learned a whileback that arguing with Amy was a one-way street.’’It was a kind of anger evident at other moments in her life, sometimes in irate flickers, sometimesin volcanic outbursts. On Feb. 12, it erupted. Authorities say the 45-year-old Bishop drew a pistolat a biology department faculty meeting and began shooting. Methodically pointing a gun at onecolleague after another, witnesses say, she killed three and seriously injured three more.The shootings reverberated across the country, but nowhere more than in her hometown of Braintree, where Bishop was known as a top student, a diligent violinist - and the woman who, asa 21-year-old, fired a shotgun at her teenage brother, blasting a hole in his chest, and killing himin what prosecutors, after a limited investigation, concluded was an accident.
