Colleges Remember Professor Payne

Perrell Payne, associate professor emeritus of philosophy, passed away on Sunday.

After his teaching career, Payne retired to North Carolina with his wife, Valera, and mountains of books, his second love. The retirement objective was to become and antiquarian book dealer. He returned to campus for the reunion of the College Bowl team, which he coached in 1961. In that year the team won five times and retired undefeated.

His obituary from The Pilot (Southern Pines, N.C.) is available.
