RICHMOND -

Longtime Earlham College President, executive, journalist and activist Landrum Bolling will be remembered Saturday during a memorial service. Earlham will host the gathering in the Goddard Auditorium on the Richmond campus.

Bolling earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Tennessee, and upon graduation, worked for the Tennessee Valley Authority, before earning a masters degree from the University of Chicago. Bolling then began work as a war correspondent during World War II, including reporting from Sarajevo during its liberation from Nazi control.

Bolling went on to teach at Beloit College and Brown University before serving as Earlham President from 1958 to 1973. Earlham College named its social sciences building after him in the fall of 2002. Bolling was also influential in many presidential administrations for his work to peacefully resolve the Israel-Palestine conflict. He served as a communications backchannel to the Palestine Liberation Organization during the Carter administration. Bolling also served as President of Lilly Endowment from 1973-1978.

Bolling will be remembered by his four children, several grandchildren, and many friends and colleagues during the service. The 104 year old passed away on January 18. For more information on Landrum Bolling click here and here
