A Bicentennial Moment: More Fairport Harbor Profiles

Today we share the stories of two more members of Fairport Harding High's Hall of Fame. One alum made his mark in the world of business, the other had a role in arguably one of the 20th century's most significant events.

                                                 George Daly Jr.

A '58 graduate of Fairport Harding High, George earned his doctorate in the discipline of business.  He served as Dean and Professor for the McDonaugh Business School at Georgetown University.  His research and publications were used by agencies at the National level.  George never forgot his hometown as he donated a computer room to the high school and a children's literature wing at the library.

                                                 Henry G. Kuivila

Kuivila graduated from the Fairport Schools in 1935.  A year later he was utilizing his educational knowledge at the Diamond Alkali.  By 1948 Henry had earned his degree in chemistry from The Ohio State University.  A Ph.D. from Harvard came shortly thereafter.  A career as a Professor at New Hampshire University and NY University followed.  Kuivila's greatest moment may have come when he worked on and contributed to one of the 20th century's defining events - The Manhattan Project.
