Mark Rowland followed his dream to go to Alaska where he has resided 50 years as an attorney and judge in our 49th state. He says that living in Alaska “is rather like falling in love with an absolutely gorgeous woman who’s seriously mean about half the time! It’s quite a place. The winters get long and sometimes I wonder why I stayed but I’m here for the duration.” .. He remembers years ago running into George Rentschler by chance down by the docks at Valdez. Mark has also stayed in touch with Alex Pagel who was his freshman roommate at Deerfield. Mark mentioned talking with Brady Coleman once in the past 60 years and commented “It was just like I’d seen him yesterday.” Brady also followed his dream and became an actor who’s now been in eight movies. .. Also very interesting is Terry Dobson ’56 who went on to become a great Aikido master and
has several books written about him. Mark gave up flying five years ago after being able to “extend my adolescence firmly into old age.” After Pony Duke passed away in October, 2014, Mark and Felicia took a trip to Italy in June together with Mary Ellen Duke and saw Pony’s son, George, who had accompanied her as far as London.
