Aha, well that explains it. I was a late convert to Geography, and crammed all my classes in starting in '97.
We must have overlapped, but i don't remember you. I was in Walker bldg from 93-95 as an (old) undergrad. I went back to State College in 97 to start Purple Lizard, and came to Maine in 2000.
I was an (old) grad student from 95-97 and spent many days in the Deasy Lab, and student lounge of the geography department (studying, of course) in the Walker building. I just missed Mike, but I did hear about him (all good, of course). Pete, we might've seen each other around, but the name doesn't ring a bell.
