Dan Earle, in 1962, was the third faculty member on the staff of the program of Landscape Architecture in the Department of Horticulture. At the time the program was looking toward ASLA accreditation. He was a part of the exceptional program growth and recognition under the leadership of Dr. Robert Reich. In the Field House years he was Doc’s assistant director and there for the establishment of the College of Environmental Design. When the School moved to its present location he became head of the graduate program, a position he held for many years. He founded the Microcomputer Office for Design Exploration in the early days of personal computers. He served as acting director when needed. While his main focus was always teaching, he also did design and environmental consulting with Coastal Environments, a multi-disciplinary firm in which he was a partner. Since retiring in 1998 with 36 years of service he has been involved in a wide range of environmental, music and art interests. He now lives in Nova Scotia, Canada.
