In Memoriam
 
Professor Peter Kwong (GC/Hunter, Sociology) died on March 17, 2017, at age 75. Widely known as one of the founding figures in Asian American Studies, he was called the “Dean of Chinatown Studies” by New York Magazine. “Peter was a deeply sympathetic friend, a caring mentor, and an inspiring teacher,” says Presidential Professor Philip Kasinitz (Sociology).

Professor Herbert Parmet (GC/Queensborough, History) died on January 25, 2017, at age 87. An esteemed teacher and advisor, he was the author of eight Presidential biographies and histories, including Jack: The Struggles of John F. Kennedy (Dial Press, 1980) and Richard Nixon: An American Enigma (Pearson, 2007).

The GC community extends deepest condolences to their many friends, family members, colleagues, and admirers.
