Last week I received a kind letter from the editor of Where to Retire magazine, a publication devoted to—what else?—assisting people in knowing some of their options for places to retire. The editor praised the work of our own Don Bradley, Associate Dean of the Howard College of Arts and Sciences, for producing four articles for the magazine, based on careful research of United States census data. The articles examined the fascinating topic of retirement migration, an issue with major implications for cities and states across the country.
By the way, after reading Don’s articles, I’ve decided to retire in Birmingham, Alabama. Looks like a great place to live.
The world is better because of the engagement of members of the Samford faculty with important issues of the day.
