Where are they now? Former faculty updates
Professor Emeritus, silviculture
I am living with my wife in Cloquet, MN and have been active in our community since my retirement. I serve on our hospital board, educational foundation, hospital foundation and our senior Kiwanis club. I miss my former silviculture students, since I had many great graduate students who helped me in my research fields of forest regeneration, herbicide use and Christmas tree production. I am a member of a local carving club, and there are several of my former students and DNR retirees, who I carve with. It is hard to believe I have been retired for 26 years and every year gets better as I am blessed with good health.
Professor Emerita and former dean of the College of Natural Resources
I retired to Oregon to be close to family, and I keep active with golfing, sailing, quilting, yoga and fitness classes. I remain professionally active and am currently working on two book chapters looking back on Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) at the Andrews Experimental Forest at Oregon State University. I have stayed connected with colleagues and alumni from the U of M, especially the class of 1957. During my four years as dean, I started a scholarship with my husband, and we enjoy receiving letters from scholarship recipients. I remember warmly my time teaching, especially the environmental leadership seminar and taking students to study water quality on the Danube River.
