Nearly 70 years ago, a young professor named Raymond Simon joined the other pioneers in shaping what would become Utica College.
Although most of us on campus today know those legendary figures by name only, quite a few of us became
acquainted with Professor Simon long after he retired. Until only a few years ago, he picked up his New York Times in the Library every day, attended basketball games, and popped in to visit his Public Relations and Journalism colleagues in the Media Convergence Center that bears his name.
In recent years, he has not been able to visit campus, yet is still in touch with his colleagues and former students – and very interested in what is happening at UC.
That is why we are hoping that those of you who remember him – and even those who do not – will join us in wishing him a very Happy Birthday when he turns 100 on August 12.
The College will also mark Professor Simon’s 100th year during Homecoming with an event on Saturday evening, October 3.
