Russell Compton passed away December 9, 2007 at the age of 98. He leaves behind a legacy of activism, scholarship, and a vision of education as a participatory endeavor not bound by the walls of the classroom or the prestige of titles.
We have created an In Memoriam page for former students, friends, family, and the many people whom Russell taught to post thoughts, memories, and words of hope. Please take a moment and visit the page to share what you remember or what you learned from Russell.
Services will be held for Russell Saturday, December 15 at 11am at Gobin Memorial United Methodist Church.
