It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of

James F. Morrison,

who suffered a fatal heart attack in Florida on September 11, 2019.
In October he would have been 82 years old.

Prof. Morrison was a long-time adjunct professor at the ASC. Teaching classes mostly on American society and economy, he was treasured by students for his warmth and kindness. He was also a frequent guest at our Thanksgiving parties, as well as other academic events and social occasions at the Center. He became a friend of many faculty members and will be greatly missed. The whole ASC community wishes to extend deepest sympathy to his family and friends.
