  1. Thanks John. You are just killing it with your work connecting the dots of who’s who.

  2. That’s David Newton, who was York’s Acting President at the time, with Sarah D’Alberti, who was Professor of Italian (she retired circa 1989). Newton had been in charge of implementing Open Admissions at CUNY, and later became Vice Chancellor for Faculty and Staff Relations, before moving to Long Island University (where they still give the David Newton Awards for Excellence in Teaching) as Executive Vice President. See his NYT obituary:
