Sad News for the Ithaca College Community: Frank Musgrave Has Passed Away Comment from hmccue on 01/03/2013
I served along with Frank as a chairperson and always liked him as a 'fellow sufferer' of those Tuesday Chair's meetings.He was outspoken and unwavering but always civil and positive. He loved his 'Dismal Science', his department and I.C. and as a teacher was always spoken of highly by his students.
It was a pleasure to know him and my sympathy goes out to his family and all his friends at IC.

Sad News for the Ithaca College Community: Frank Musgrave Has Passed Away Comment from thomasg on 01/04/2013
I agree with Harry. At those Tuesday Chairs' Meetings, Frank spoke of what he called "the academy" and our academy with great fondness and a sense of great responsibility. Frank drew "the short straw," to my way of thinking, during the very public campaign during the 1980s for IC to divest itself of stocks in companies doing business in South Africa, which led to our going before the faculty, the SGA, the president, and ultimately the Board of Trustees. But he referenced our "dog and pony shows" almost longingly in his remarks at the H&S reception honoring his retirement a few years ago, appreciating a level of civility and mutual respect that he felt was too often lacking in academic discourse. I deeply appreciated his generosity.
