Fred Antil was in the first AEGIS cohort (M.A. '84, Ed.D. '86, Higher and Adult Education). Before coming to Teachers College, Fred earned his Bachelor of Science from Cornell University. He then spent three years as a Marine Corps Officer. Fred spent most of his professional life in Human Resource Development. He has held senior positions at Marriott, other companies, and several large trade associations. Fred also earned a Master of Science in Organizational Development from George Washington University. He was a VP of the American Management Association when he discovered AEGIS. His advisor, Dr. Mezirow, founded AEGIS. While in the program he became Special Assistant to the Dean of Cornell's School of Hotel Administration. Under Mezirow's guidance his dissertation, "Developing A Continuing Education Program For Executives In The Hospitality Industry" was perfect for his career assignment. After retiring from Cornell, he taught part-time at Canisius College for five years. For a decade Fred had a local radio show, interviewing interesting/informative people. Fred now works with Cornell University, Ithaca College, and community organizations as a volunteer. Years ago he began researching Lincoln and he has given frequent presentations about him, often attired as our 16th president. Most recently Fred led a series of adult discussions of Lincoln's speeches under a grant from NYS Council for the Humanities.
