About Bud’s Beat

Richard “Bud” Meade got to know many faculty and staff members while working in Human Resources at SUNY Brockport from 1968 to 2000. Throughout his retirement, he has dedicated much of his time and heart to a hobby that made others’ retirements a little extra special, that kept the post-Brockport community close, and paid beautiful tributes to its members. His 22-year emeriti/retiree newsletter is a remarkable project that captured the intricacies and significance of the lives that shaped SUNY Brockport. In August 2020, Bud retired from his passion project and passed the baton onto the Division of Advancement & Communications.
