    COVER ILLUSTRATION BY PAUL WEARING

    John Kimelman 79, whose profile of Clark President David Angel appears on page 34, calls himself a willing victim of the schools upgraded alumni outreach. In late June,

    Karen Doherty from the Advancement Office

    e-mailed Kimelman, who is executive editor of

    Barrons.com, the website of the investment

    publication, to ask him if he was interested in

    profiling Angel for the alumni magazine.

    I quickly replied that I would be happy to do

    it, he says. I was motivated partly out of guilt

    because I hadnt given more of myself to the

    school over the decades.

    In mid-July, Kimelman interviewed Angel at

    the Barrons office in midtown Manhattan. One

    sort of expects a university president to be filled

    with a bit of ego and bravado, Kimelman says.

    I found David to be anything but that. He seemed

    completely unpretentious and totally likable. Its

    clear that hes an intellectual first and foremost

    who sees his goal as president to execute on care-

    fully considered ideas.

    Kimelman, who also holds a masters in

    journalism from Northwestern and an MBA from

    Columbia, is a career journalist who specializes

    in financial issues. He is married to Nancy Rose,

    an entertainment lawyer, and is the father

    of two girls, Coco, age 16, and Ella, age 5. He has

    fond memories of Worcesters collection of late-

    night diners.
