In Memoriam

Williams said goodbye recently to two beloved members of its community. Professor of Mathematics, emeritus, Victor E. Hill IV died in July at the age of 76. David A. Booth, retired vice provost and political science lecturer, died in September at the age of 84. In sharing news of their deaths with the Williams community, Williams President Adam Falk stated that Hill “exemplified the liberal arts ideal of interdisciplinary studies” as a mathematician, accomplished harpsichordist and organist, and volunteer with the Association of Anglican Musicians. Falk noted Booth’s important work building a robust institutional research office within the provost’s office.
