Richard H. Shriver, Publisher of Estuary Magazine
The Connecticut River … past, present and future

RESERVE YOUR VIRTUAL SEAT

 

The Connecticut River … its long and peaceful past until the industrial revolution, followed by years of abuse, then partial recovery, and a bright outlook today.

Dick Shriver uses PowerPoint slides to illustrate his presentation on the last 12,000 years of the CT River to the present, with special attention to abuse of the river during and following the industrial revolution.  He acknowledges those in government who established the present-day regulatory apparatus that has helped clean up the water in the river.  Finally, he summarizes the good works currently underway for the long-term benefit of the environmental and ecological features of the river.

Dick Shriver has a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a master’s degree in Industrial Engineering.  He has held executive positions in government and industry having been assistant secretary of the US Treasury Department and Senior Vice President, Chase Manhattan Bank.  He has been professor of business finance & marketing at the International Management Institute, Kiev, Ukraine.   He is provost emeritus of the European College of Liberal Arts (now Bard College Berlin), and is currently head coach of girls’ varsity lacrosse at Old Saybrook High School.
