Dale Richards

Dale lives in Kent, OH with his wife Marylee. His son Evan lives and works in Pittsburgh, PA, his daughter Maeve lives and works in Columbus, OH, and his son Ben lives and works in the Cleveland area.

Dale retired as Emeritus Associate Vice President from Kent State University in 2005. Since then, he has consulted for both Kent State and the Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine.

In May 2008, Dale completed his fourth Kent State degree, a Master of Arts in Teaching to prepare for a second career teaching language arts and literature at the secondary level. He is currently teaching composition for Kent State as a part-time instructor and seeking continuing employment as a teacher of students who are willing to struggle to develop their voice as writers.

He and his photographer friend Crito have spent many hours walking through the parks and other wild places that struggle to provide a counterbalance to the often toxic presence of humans in northeast Ohio. They also frequently enjoy long and rambling reflective conversations.
