Mark Schumacher


Raised in California and Hawaii, I studied French at Stanford University, then French and Library Science at SUNY/Buffalo, getting my MLS in 1978; I came to work at UNCG weeks later. I lived in France for about three years, ages ago toward the end of the Napoleonic Era. I have been known to play Frisbee and cheer for UNCG’s athletic teams.
