Memories times three
Three alumni who became faculty members got together to reminisce over lunch during the summer break. From left are R. Roger Remington ’58 (art and design), Vignelli Professor of Design; Frank Cost ’87 (computer science), professor of digital publishing and printing and associate dean, College of Imaging Arts and Sciences; and Stanley Witmeyer ’36 (art and design), professor emeritus. Witmeyer, who lives in Rochester, was an instructor from 1946 to 1952 and served as head of the School of Art and Design for 19 years. He retired in 1987. “One of Stanley’s achievements was to advance the art school from a traditional beaux arts academy to a leading modern design program,” says Remington.
