Passing of Prof. Harry Guilford marks end of 62-year relationship
Harry Garrett Guilford, 85, of Allouez, passed away Feb. 4. A founding faculty member, he served as chair of biology from 1968 to 1970, as Secretary of the Faculty 1971-76, as chair of Human Biology and speaker of the Faculty Senate. He retired from day-to-day duties in 1988 but remained active, attending University events and teaching and learning through the Learning in Retirement program. Guilford was first appointed to the faculty of the two-year UW Center in Green Bay in 1950. Interviewed a few years ago for a LOG story on his lengthy career, he observed that he first joined the UW payroll even earlier, just after WW II, as a paid graduate assistant. Counting emeritus status, then, he had a 62-year professional relationship with the UW at the time of his death. He is survived by two daughters and their families. According to his wishes, there will be a private family memorial service at a later date. Link to the obituary in the Feb. 11 Press-Gazette.
