Bloomington, IN USA
Retired Clinical Law Professor
I have two children, Alexandra Blackmore, born March 16, 1978 and Andrew Singleton, born September 24, More…1980. They each have two children. I have three granddaughters ages 9 and 5, Madeline, Emmaline and Lilly. I have one grandson, Henry, age 6.
Initially, I returned to New York City and tried to find my bearings. After a brief stint as a taxicab driver I worked as a criminal court officer in a juvenile court. When the city became too taxing I moved to indiana to work at Earlham college as an Assistant Director of an Upward Bound program. It is there that I met my late wife. We moved from Earlham college to Indiana University in Bloomington where I became a graduate student and my wife, Diane, finished her undergraduate degree. We had our first child while in Bloomington and then moved to Oberlin where we had our second child and I worked in the Admissions office for three years. We then moved back to Bloomington where I went to law school. After law school we moved to Kalamazoo, Michigan where I worked at a mid-sized law firm before we moved back to Bloomington and I joined the law school. I worked at the law school until retiring in June of 2018.
The one school memory that will stick with me for the rest of my days is the basketball season of 1969-70. That year our team won the Ohio Athletic Conference championship tournament by beating Wittenberg. I was a starting member of the team along with Randy Miller’70, Al Wellington, ‘70, Fred Van Essen, ‘71 and Vic Guerrieri, ‘72.
