Allan A. Kuusisto memorial service to be held on Sunday
June 14, 2000 Geneva, NY – A service of thanksgiving for the life of Allan A. Kuusisto, former Hobart and William Smith Colleges president, will be held at 11 a.m. on Sunday, June 18, in St. John's Chapel on the HWS campus. Kuusisto, who served as president from 1970 until 1982, died in April at his home in New Hampshire. He was last on campus this spring, participating in an alumni panel discussion that focused on HWS in the 1970s.
While serving as president, Kuusisto was involved in many civic organizations in Geneva and the Colleges community extends an invitation to all those who knew Kuusisto to attend the memorial service. The service will include remarks by President Mark D. Gearan and Chaplain Lesley M. Adams, along with readings by Professors Deborah Tall and David Weiss.
The Kuusisto family plans to attend. Everyone in the community is invited to greet the family at a reception after the service at Delancey House on campus.
