Allan Korblum GS '73, who earned his Ph.D. from the Wilson School, died last week. He wrote his dissertation on ethics and corruption in the New York Police Department. Unusually, he served as an administrator while a student, becoming Director of Security in 1969.
Of particular note was his role in ending the "snow riot" of 1970, which some had suggested was a precursor to the Nude Olympics. Administrators, fearing that the crowd of semi-nude students could rapidly become a riot, had set up warm snacks in Dillon. Kornblum began chanting "Dillon! Dillon!" to entice students out of the cold and to break up the crowd.
