He came to Princeton from Honolulu’s Punahou School, where he served on the literary magazine and played tennis.
At Princeton Michael played in jazz and rock bands, majored in architecture, and joined Terrace Club, the Princeton Outing Club, and the Air Force Drill Team. In 1968 he earned a master’s degree in architecture from Washington University in Saint Louis. Later he earned a master’s in community planning from the University of Cincinnati.
In our 50th-reunion yearbook Michael reported retiring twice: after 20 years as an Air Force officer specializing in architecture and facility planning and management, and after 13 years as campus planner for the University of Cincinnati, where his work assisted the institution in gaining national recognition for campus design.
After retirement he pursued his interest in model railroading and wrote a book on sustainable public transportation systems, Sustainable Transportation and Development. He also developed a website, GrowSmartPlanet.org, focusing on green living and transportation.
The class extends its sincere condolences to his wife, Marilyn; daughters Jennifer Paz and Cynthia Jane Evans; three grandsons; brother Richard; and stepsister Carla Allison-Miller.
