Dick Gale, former ENVS Director, passes

Dick Gale 2It is with sadness that we report the passing of Dick Gale, who died on September 27, 2013 following a massive stroke. Dick was director of the Environmental Studies Program from 1993 to 1996 and was responsible for the formation of the undergraduate major and the doctoral degree. This story, written by ENVS alumnus Matthew Booker for the first issue of the Ecotone in 1997, provides interesting insight on Dick’s contributions and the history of the Environmental Studies Program.
