By Linda Conti, Professional Development
April 4, 2007

Henry C. Lee, Ph.D., internationally prominent forensic scientist and legal investigator, will speak at a two-day conference sponsored by UNH Professional Development and Training Thursday and Friday, April 12 and 13, at the Wayfarer Inn in Bedford, NH.

The conference, "Following the Footsteps of the Original Surveyor," will focus on case studies and methods for today's surveyors to retrace original land boundaries. It is geared to land surveyors, foresters, civil engineers, attorneys, selectmen, town planners, and related professionals.

Lee, who holds a Ph.D. in biochemistry and several honorary doctoral degrees, will give his presentation, "Investigative Techniques and Considerations for the Discovery, Analysis, and Perpetuation of Evidence," on April 12.

He has been commissioner, chief criminologist, and director of the Connecticut State Police Forensic Science Laboratory in Meriden, Connecticut. A professor and founder of the forensic science department at the University of New Haven, Lee is a distinguished adjunct professor at eight other universities. In addition to having an involvement in 30 books and several hundred professional articles, he has testified over 1,000 times and serves as a consultant for over 900 agencies.

Several sessions will be offered throughout the conference, led by experts in retracement surveying and the gathering of legal evidence. A discussion of Verplanck Colvin's famous survey of the Adirondacks, led by Donald Wilson, conference coordinator, land surveyor, and author of several articles and books, including his upcoming publication, "Forensic Techniques for Boundary and Title Investigation," will be among the other conference highlights.

The cost of the conference is $360 and is approved for continuing education hours for surveyors and foresters. For more information, contact Professional Development & Training at 2-4234 or go to www.learn.unh.edu/surveys.
