Professor of Romance Languages and Literature (1950-81)
Presented: April 12, 1983, by James Davis, professor of French
Marcel Moraud was chairman of the Department of Romance Languages and Literature from 1950 to 1981 and set up the Junior Year in France program more than 25 years ago. His business acumen, common sense and wit always added a lively extra dimension to any professional or social gathering. We will remember Marcel as a bon vivant, enjoying what life had to offer and especially appreciative of his relationships with family, friends and colleagues. Marcel’s sudden death on June 11, 1982, took from us a very generous man whose jovial and kindly presence as administrator and teacher will be missed by all who knew him.
