Rob Norton ’92
Jeffrey MacMillan p’14

LET THE MUSIC PLAY: Rob Norton ’92 fulfilled a longtime dream in 2014, when he opened Hill & Dale Records in Washington, D.C. A veteran of the pharmaceutical industry, he says the initial learning curve was difficult but “it was the first time I have ever had real fun at work.” Norton was meticulous in crafting the store’s space — he even designed the record display cases — and he carefully curates its wares: vinyl records, posters, and photography. “I’m strictly against music snobbery,” he says. “If it makes people happy, then any kind of music is OK.”
