After half-century at RIT, Eugene Fram retires
Saunders College of Business professor Eugene H. Fram, RIT’s longest-serving faculty member, retired in May after 51 years with the university.
For his significant contributions, the J. Warren McClure Research Professor of Marketing received the Presidential Medallion during commencement ceremonies.
In addition to his teaching, Fram was frequently quoted regarding retail business by local and national news media including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Associated Press, Boston Globe, Washington Post and Sacramento Bee and CNN.com.
On April 8, Fram was awarded professor emeritus distinction during his farewell luncheon. He has moved to Palo Alto, Calif., to be with his family.
Fram was the 63rd recipient of the Presidential Medallion, first issued in 1979.
“This is a highlight to a 51-year-run that I will sadly miss,” he says. “But when I look back over my career, its challenges and its rewards, I can honestly say I’ve enjoyed going to work every day. Not many people can say that.”
