Former Illustration professor Curtis W. Johnson, age 82, passed away on Wednesday, May 23, 2012. After 27 years of teaching, Curtis retired from Kendall in 1992. In 1975/76 he served as acting President, and was instrumental in the development of the Illustration program and in the formation of the Kendall Faculty Association. He was an active participant in helping to shape the direction and reputation of the College, especially during the years when the school became a degree-granting institution. His family has requested that those who wish to make a donation please consider contributions to the Kendall Scholarship Fund.
