Clifton C. "Cliff" Garvin Jr. (chemical engineering '43, M.S. '47), retired board chairman and CEO of Exxon Corp. (now Exxon Mobil Corp.), whose dedicated service and philanthropy set an example at Virginia Tech, died on April 17. A native of Portsmouth, Virginia, Garvin served as a combat engineer in the U.S. Army, making multiple landings in the South Pacific during World War II. After returning to Blacksburg and completing a master's degree in 1947, he joined the precursor of Exxon, starting out as a process engineer in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Garvin was elected to the board in 1968 and named president in 1972. He became chairman and CEO in 1973 and served in that capacity until retiring in 1986. He served on the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors from 1988 to 1996 and as rector from 1991 to 1996. In 1983, Garvin was the first recipient of Virginia Tech's University Distinguished Achievement Award. In 1997, he was presented the William H. Ruffner Medal, the university's highest honor, and he received the Alumni Distinguished Service Award in 2001. Along with his wife, Thelma, Garvin was a member of the President's Circle in the Ut Prosim Society, which recognizes the university's most generous donors.
