FACULTY AND FRIENDS DEATHS
Glen Heuberger, former director of the
Tidewater Agricultural Research and Extension Center and
president of the Virginia-North Carolina Peanut Advisory
Committee, died Nov. 2. He is remembered for the great leadership
he provided the Tidewater center from 1985 until his
retirement in 1999. His relationship with the agriculture
industry, including the peanut, soybean, and pork
commodity associations of Virginia, made Heuberger a leader in
the changing nature of Virginia agriculture. Despite
state budget cuts and a reduction of staff, the dedicated work of
the Tidewater center developed a research and Extension
program to focus on cotton, a plant that became an important crop
in various areas of Virginia.
Anne Cheney, associate professor emeritus of
English, died Dec. 17. She began her 32 years with Virginia Tech
in 1968 as an instructor of English. In 1971 she became
an associate professor and taught until she retired in
2000. Cheney was the author of two biographies, including
the Pulitzer Prize-nominated Life and Letters of Jesse Hill Ford. Her literary work led her to write and publish two
poetry books, one of which was The Burg and Other Poems, a collection that included poems by several of her students.
She edited and published a memorial poetry book
entitled Ophelia's Legs and Other Poems by Theresa
Gillespie. Contributions on her behalf may be sent to the
Humane Society of Montgomery County or to the Alan B.
Cheney Memorial Scholarship Fund of Birmingham-Southern College.
James W. Dean, vice president
emeritus, died Jan.5. After earning his Ph.D.
from Pennsylvania State University, he served in the U.S. Army
Air Force from 1941 to 1945. During his military career
he was decorated with the Silver Star; the Distinguished
Flying Cross with Five Oak-leaf Clusters; the Presidential
Unit Citation with Two Oak-leaf Clusters; the Asia
Theater Medal; the China Order of Merit; and the Purple Heart.
Dean served Virginia Tech from 1958 until his retirement in 1985
as dean of students, vice president for student affairs,
and university dean. He remained active in numerous
organizations until his death. His family requests that contributions
on his behalf be donated to the Virginia Tech
Foundation, specifically to the Dr. James W. Dean Student Scholarship Fund.
Coyt T. Wilson, former director of the Virginia
Agricultural Experiment Station and former associate dean of
Virginia Tech's research division, died Jan. 25. A graduate of
Alabama Polytechnic and the University of Minnesota, Wilson was
a plant pathologist and plant physiologist. He
headed Virginia Tech's agricultural research effort from 1965
until his retirement in 1978. Having earned a reputation as one
of the world's leading peanut plant pathologists,
Wilson joined the administrative team of the Experiment Station
in 1964. An excellent administrator and organizer, Wilson
was one of a small group of scientists who created
a classification system that allowed researchers to
examine all work previously done on a project by entering a
database. A new peanut variety being released by Virginia Tech
will bear Wilson's name.
