Emerita Professor Genevieve M. Casey Dies
The School is saddened by news of the death of Wayne State University Emerita Professor Genevieve M. Casey. Professor Casey's family note that she led a rich, full life and loved her experiences at the Library and Information Science Program at Wayne State. In particular, she treasured a photo from a special June 2008 WSU Reunion held in her honor, titled the "Class of 1972 Professor Genevieve M. Casey Fellows Reunion Group - June 2008, McGregor Memorial Conference Center, Wayne State University." At that reunion, Casey's former students conceived and initiated a new scholarship to honor the woman who did so much to shape their professional lives: the Professor Genevieve M. Casey Endowed Scholars Fund.
