Daniel Benjamin ‘75
I made the mistake of telling my dear wife that my four years at Carolina were the best years of my life. You see, she graduated from Syracuse and in college I Knew her not. Fortunately, the error was not fatal, and two children and two grandchildren later, we are well and splitting our time between Stamford, CT and Palm Beach, FL. I am a trial lawyer with a small firm and practice in CT and to a lesser degree in NY. I have visited Carolina many times and despite showing my son my honors’ thesis, which was still on the shelf, he rebelliously chose Duke. My daughter was a PBK, as was I, my mom’s twin, and their dad, my grandfather. It might be an interesting project to do a sociological study on multigenerational PBKs. I am no genius, merely a hard worker and generally competent in completing tasks. That would be my general hypothesis, and I would leave the data collection and analysis to others. Thank UNC Sociology for teaching me so many years ago and encouraging me as an honors student.
