1968-1969 Geography  Alumni

Kenneth Fine '68 received an MA degree in Geography from Miami University in Ohio and is currently employed as a land use planner with the Town of Huntington on Long Island.  He writes "I received my AICP in 1979.  Dealing with the political structure of the town as well as the private developers never ceases to be a challenge.  In my spare time I've continued to run and recently completed my 15th NYC Marathon. I am married and have a high school aged son, a college-age daughter, and a dog.  After taking my daughter up to school at Albany, I enjoyed stopping to visit with Prof. Schnell."  Email: KDFine@aol.com  1/01
