Honors - Alumni Profiles
- Stanley Falkow
A college education ideally provides you with the intellectual tools you need to begin your life's work. It is also the place where many people learn to become independent in their ideas. Maine provided me with a wonderful undergraduate education taught by thoughtful, caring people.
- Charles Stanhope
At the University of Maine, Charles Stanhope learned the value of public education. Since retiring from the Library of Congress, he has dedicated himself to giving back.
- Bruce Stanton
University of Maine alumnus Dr. Bruce Stanton of Dartmouth Medical School will deliver the 2011 Distinguished Honors Graduate Lecture on Feb. 23: “Arsenic: A Global Health Crisis. How Safe Is Our Water and Food?” We asked him to profile his career, which includes pioneering research in the cure for cystic fibrosis.
- Sarah Bigney
It all started with a few cups of coffee.
Four years ago, Sarah Adams Bigney was a student worker at the Oakes Room Café in the University of Maine’s Fogler Library, drinking down almost as many lattes as she was serving up, when she started to wonder about all that coffee she was handling.
- Kristen Gwinn
Historian Kristen Gwinn is drawn to the lives of these women who were ahead of their time. In her own way, Gwinn was too.
- Bettina Boxall
The 2009 Pulitzer Prize winners in explanatory reporting are UMaine alumna Bettina Boxall and Julie Cart of the Los Angeles Times for their five-part series, “Big Burn,” exploring the growth and cost of wildfires.
