Edward Harris, a member of the Board of Trustees for two decades, died March 16. He was 92.

A third-generation partner of the Rochester-based law firm of Harris Beach, Harris was elected to the board in 1970 and served as a voting member until 1983. He resigned as a life trustee in 1990. He also was a member of the boards of Strong Memorial Hospital and the Memorial Art Gallery.

Memorials in his name are being accepted by the Genesee Valley Conservancy, 1 Main St., Geneseo, NY 14454.

Sol M. Linowitz, former chairman of Xerox, noted American diplomat, and a trustee for more than 10 years, died March 18. He was 91.

With Joseph C. Wilson ’31, Linowitz helped turn the small Rochester company Haloid into the international copying giant Xerox, which he led as chairman from 1960 to 1966.

Elected to the Board of Trustees in 1954, he served until 1967.

Linowitz went on to become ambassador to the Organization of American States during the Johnson administration. He later helped negotiate the transfer of the Panama Canal to Panama, and he represented the Carter administration in Middle East peace negotiations that followed the 1978 Camp David accords.


John H. Morton ’54M (Res), professor emeritus of surgery and former clinical director of the emergency department at Strong Memorial Hospital, died February 6. He was 82.

A past president of the Monroe County Medical Society, Morton graduated from Amherst College and earned his medical degree from Yale University. He completed an internship and residency at Strong before joining the faculty.

Contributions may be made in his memory to the Third Presbyterian Church, 4 Meigs St., Rochester NY 14607, or the Nature Conservancy, 1048 University Ave., Rochester, NY 14607.


Ruth Watanabe ’52E (PhD), librarian of the Eastman School of Music’s Sibley Music Library for nearly four decades and namesake of its special collections department, died February 26. She was 88.

Watanabe began her career at the library as a student assistant and became a full-time staff member in 1944. After being named librarian in 1947, she oversaw the library and the growth of its collections until her retirement in 1984.

A native of California, Watanabe had earned three degrees from the University of Southern California when she was interned in a camp for Japanese Americans during World War II. Learning of her situation, then school director Howard Hanson invited her to Rochester to work on a Ph.D.

In 1996, the library celebrated Watanabe’s 80th birthday by officially renaming the special collections department the Ruth T. Watanabe Special Collections.

Gifts in her memory can be made to the Sibley Music Library, 27 Gibbs St., Rochester, NY 14604.

Because of an error in the way information about deceased alumni is processed, the In Memoriam section in the Spring 2005 issue of Rochester Review did not properly list the name of Bruce S. A. Gillies ’84M (MD), who died in August 2004.
