Tony graduated in 1980 from New York State University having obtained a degree in Geology; from there he found work as a geologist based in Alaska. Sadly in 1986 he was killed in an accident:
Daily Sitka Sentinel, Anchorage, Alaska: Tuesday, July 1, 1986:
"An employee of the Federal Bureau of Mines died after sliding 300 feet down a snow-filled chute on a mountain south of Juneau, officials said Monday. Anthony Dunn, 27, of Anchorage had been flown by helicopter to Hawthorne Peak as part of a surveying party looking at minerals, said Don Blasko, chief of the agency's Alaska field operations center. Saturday afternoon, Dunn was at the 3,000-foot level of the 4,200-foot peak when he apparently lost his footing and slid down the snow chute, Blasko said. At the bottom, Dunn crashed into rocks. He died at the scene and was taken by helicopter the 7 miles back to Juneau, said Alaska State Troopers spokesman Paul Edscorn."
Tony is remembered through the "Anthony P. (Tony) Dunn Award" established by the SUNY Geology Department, presented to a student that has shown a similar love of geology and scholarship to Tony.
