BU Faculty Obituary: Mark Allen

20140715 BU Mark AllenThe obituary notice for Mark Allen caught my attention, not because I was a 1989 participant in the BU Oxford Honors Study Program (CLA ’90), but because of the heartfelt addendum by Dee Mondschein (CAS ’97).

Mark was not one of my tutors (I read the Politics and History modules), but Dee’s description of the tutorial system brought back fond memories of my own Oxford experience.

It is gentlemen like Mark who bring life to one’s scholastic journey. It was comforting to read one of his student’s accounts, and surely he had a positive impact on many more. May Mark Allen be remembered thus.
