Hilary Gold, Retired Academic Administrator at Brooklyn College, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of higher education.
Dedicated to his students and promoting peace, Dr. Gold spent many wonderful years with Brooklyn College. He immigrated to the United States from England in 1949 and though he had been selected to serve in the Marines during the Korean War, the military instead instructed Mr. Gold to attend college. He received a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Science from Brooklyn College, subsequently earning a Doctor of Education from Columbia University. Following this accomplishment, he returned to Brooklyn College and worked as a professor, dean of students, vice president of both campus affairs and student life, and grand marshal, among other positions. Dr. Gold acutely remembers serving as a mediator during the takeovers at Brooklyn College and is glad to have been a part of something so monumental.
Recognized for his achievements, Dr. Gold has received awards such as the Exemplary Service Award from the New York City Council in 1983, among others. He has been appointed a United States Sports Ambassador by President Ronald Reagan in Nepal in 1984 and holds membership with organizations including, but not limited to, the Brooklyn College Alumni Association and Kappa Delta Pi. Dr. Gold remains grateful to his mentors Lester Dicks and Lenard Camworthing, the latter previously serving as his late wife’s mentor. He considers himself to be blessed to have spent 62 years married to her and now lives in California with his children.
In recognition of his success, Dr. Gold has been featured in multiple editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Education and Who’s Who in the East and will soon publish a book titled “Follow the Children.”
