Dale Richards

Dale lives in Kent, OH with his wife Marylee. His son Evan lives and works in Pittsburgh, PA, his daughter Maeve and her fiance Matt live and work in Columbus, OH, and his son Ben and daughter-in-law Brittany live and work 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.

Since 2008, he has been teaching composition for Kent State as a part-time instructor in English and the Honors College.

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.
