In Memoriam

As we continue to move along in years, our dear teachers and administrators at Vanderbilt while we were on campus, are passing away.

One of the latest is Professor John L. Bingham who died on May 2 in Nashville at the age of 93. He held both a B.A. and M.A. degree from Vanderbilt in the Romance Languages. He taught for 40 years at the school and was instrumental in the growth of undergraduate majors in Spanish and Portugese. He also served as an Associate Dean in the College of Arts & Science and was awarded the Chancellor's Cup in 1982 for his for outstanding service to students outside the classroom. Professor Bingham was also quite active in Vanderbilt's studying abroad programs.

His full obitary from THE TENNESSEAN appears at the link below.....

May he rest in peace.
