SILS event will honor Kenneth Vance

Faculty, staff, students and friends of the School of Information and Library Studies (SILS) will meet at 4:30 p.m. May 20 at the Alumni Center Building to honor and celebrate the life of the late Kenneth E. Vance, professor emeritus and former assistant dean of SILS.

The program will include remarks by some of Vance’s close friends and Uni-versity colleagues, a slide show about his life, musical entertainment and light refreshments.

Vance, who retired in 1982, continued to teach a class each year, advised students and served on doctoral committees. He also served as executive secretary to the SILS Alumni Society.

SILS has established the Kenneth E. Vance Scholarship Fund in his honor. The first recipient of the award will be announced at this memorial event, which also marks the occasion of Vance’s birthday. To contribute to the fund, call SILS, 763-2281.

The program is open to the public. Persons interested in attending should call SILS by May 16.
