IMG_2329Thanks to Chris Wang, the volunteer local leader of activities in Kansas City, I spent a lovely evening last night with several MIT alumni on a visit to this city, a notable one in American history and in the present era.  A wide range of people showed up, with backgrounds from the Sloan School of Management, Department of Urban Studies and Planning, Department of Architecture, as well as the sciences and engineering.  Chris, by the way, attended the Sloan School and is currently Senior Manager, Global Diagnostics Marketing at Pfizer Animal Health.

What a pleasant surprise for me, too, to find one of my former students Mike Frisch (seen below, far right), whom I knew as a graduate student in City Planning.  Mike moved on several years ago to become a faculty member at the University of Missouri Kansas City department of architecture, urban planning, and design.  It was great to make the re-connection with him and to meet other new folks.
