  Cindy Van Dover Named Director of Duke Marine Laboratory
The Duke University Marine Lab is a unit of the Nicholas School.
Van Dover, who specializes in the study of deep-sea hydrothermal vents and chemosynthetic communities, has received numerous honors for her research and teaching, including a Fulbright Research Scholarship in 2004, a National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2000 and a William and Mary Alumni Fellowship Award for Outstanding Teaching in 2003.
Her appointment as director of the Duke Marine Lab represents a homecoming of sorts: In 1994-95, she served as Mary Derrickson McCurdy Visiting Scholar at the lab and, in the late 1970s, she worked as a technician there after graduating from Rutgers.

 Duke of York - Return to Dover
The possibility was remote of anyone returning to Dover from its evacuation first to Cheltenham and then to North Devon who experienced school life before the war was remote.
It is against this background of school life before the war, the haphazard life of those during the evacuation, and the return to Dover that the changes during the first ten years after WWII must be equated.
Such were the changes that took place once the school returned to Dover to occupy the premises vacated for the duration of the war.

At Dover William remained a week, and here his army was attacked by a foe often more deadly to the armies of the Middle Ages than the enemies they had come out to fight.
This city was of considerable importance, both because it was the old royal residence and still the financial centre of the state, and because it was the abode of Edith, the queen of Edward the Confessor, to whom it had been assigned as part of her dower.

For, fierce and relentless as the Duke's deeds were, his faith was notably sincere; and while this made, indeed, the prince's chief attraction to the pious Edward, so, on the other hand, this bowed the Duke in a kind of involuntary and superstitious homage to the man who sought to square deeds to faith.

Just to complicate matters further about Duke's original name, Donald Shepherd et al, in their book Duke: the life and times of John Wayne say that he was originally called Marion Robert but this was changed to Marion Mitchell.
In later years Duke called himself 'Michael' because the 'Mitchell' member of the family that he was named after (his maternal grandfather) was diagnosed with a mental illness, and in those days this amounted to great family shame.
The authors claim this to be quite a mystery, for it seems out of character for Duke to reject the name of his maternal grandfather, who was quite a man to look up to before his illness.
