Say it ain't so! You might have thought
that Dale Miquelon was not the
retiring sort, but it turns out, alas, that he is. Dale, seen here practicing for retirement with his wife Pat, taught his very last class (for the record, History 450.6, "French Canada Before 1800") yesterday afternoon. He will retire at the end of this academic year after a distinguished career that features exceptional contributions in research, teaching, and administration -- the three-part academic equivalent of the grand slam.
