Mark MaGrann, a long-time supporter of the Department of Geography, passed away on April 3, 2019. Mark was an alumni of Rutgers University, and while there, developed a particular interest and affinity in geography. This led years later to a renewed friendship with the Rutgers Geography program. His presence will be missed, but the endowment he created for the Department of Geography will continue to support the kind of geographic research he was passionate about. Full obituary.
