Honoring the Duke Alumni Who Died on 9/11

In memory of the six Duke alumni who perished in the attacks on New York and Washington, Duke planted a grove of six trees in Keohane Quadrangle. On Sunday, as occurs on each anniversary of the attack, Duke Alumni Engagement and Development lays a wreath to remember the six Duke alumni we lost on that day:

J. Robinson Lenoir '84
Peter Ortale '87
Christopher Todd Pitman '93
Todd Rancke '81
Frederick C. Rimmele III M.D.'94
Michael Morgan Taylor '81
