Beloved Professor Gone

Posted By Christine E. Borkan (Edwards), Thursday, September 23, 2010
Updated: Thursday, September 23, 2010

Yesterday in New York, Hiram lost one of its most beloved profs.  John Strassburger was a professor of history here at Hiram College in the 1970's and 1980's, bringing to us a love of architecture and helping to create the Regional studies program.  Many of us students went on to pursue careers in preservation, architectural history, and history because of him.  His dedication to the field of higher education continued at the National Endowment for the Humanities, Knox College, and Ursinus College near Philadelphia, from whence John retired this past spring.  Well known for his bow ties and engaging grin, he will be greatly missed!

Memorial service:  Sunday, 9/26/10 at Bomberger Hall on the Ursinus campus, with a reception to follow at the Berman Museum, also on campus.
