Class of 1963 Reunion Class Notes
Chauncey L. Walker ’63
After our graduation, I spent twenty-seven years in the real estate department at Kelley Drye & Warren in New York City, with a one-year sojourn in California to start a real estate department in the firm’s Los Angeles office. After that, I practiced for a further sixteen years in the real estate department at Cuddy & Feder in White Plains, NY.
While at Cuddy & Feder, in 1999 I began to teach Real Estate Transactions and Finance as an Adjunct Professor at Pace University School of Law in White Plains. My relationship with the Law School developed nicely, and in 2006 I was offered an associate deanship there, which I accepted.
My title is Associate Dean for Administration and Community Relations. The duties are highly varied and involve me in buildings and grounds matters, security, safety and emergency planning, transportation, faculty and staff office assignments, and so forth (all of which led one of my colleagues recently to comment that I am really the school’s “Associate Dean for Infrastructure,” which I find to be both amusing and generally accurate).
I continue to teach my Real Estate Transactions and Finance course, and this year we added an upper level skills seminar in commercial real estate to my responsibilities.
Such spare time as I have is pretty well filled with all the things that my wife, Gina, and I enjoy doing and with seven grandchildren, golf, the New York Football Giants, the New York Yankees and skiing. I do not think much about the possibility of retiring and will continue to ignore the idea as long as I remain in good health and enjoy working.
We are looking forward eagerly to June and our reunion.
