After graduating MIT in mechanical engineering, I spent eight years conducting research in anti-submarine warfare as a contractor to the U.S. Navy. In 1983 I co-founded The Cadmus Group LLC, of which I am still Chairman. Cadmus employs 650 people doing program development, evaluation, and policy research in environmental protection, energy efficiency, sustainable development, climate change, and homeland security. In February 2017 I published "With Their Bare Hands: General Pershing, the 79th Division, and the Battle for Montfaucon," about America's involvement in World War I. My inspiration for the book came from my grandfather, who fought in the 79th Division. In my research I spent seventeen years combing archives in Washington, Baltimore, Paris, West Point, and Carlisle, Pennsylvania. I also walked the battlefield itself, finding and standing in the very trench from which my grandfather attacked up the slope of Montfaucon in 1918. I now spend as much time as possible with my wife Ruth (Allderdice '63) visiting our grandchildren in Los Angeles and Efrat, Israel.
