Subject: Re: Von's services

Dear Colleagues:

         I represented AEJMC at Von's funeral today. I gave remarks that
expressed AEJMC's appreciation of Von's service to our organization and to
the journalism profession. A designated person read the AEJMC resolution
expressing its respect and appreciation for Von. That resolution is posted
on the AEJMC website.

          The service was well attended. Although her university's (Kent
State) classes started today, the journalism classes were cancelled so that
students could attend the services. They were well represented.

           I was honored to have represented AEJMC in paying tribute to Von.

Subject: Summary so far re: Honoring Von
To: [log in to unmask]

> Thanks to everyone for their in-put.

> I have not gotten to all my email sent since Friday so there may be more
information than what is summarized below.  Please post to the whole list
your opinions about what I am to suggest and response to the question I ask.


> If anyone wants to send personal condolences or contributions to the
scholarship in Von's name at Kent or ask her daughter a question the
information is:

> 1.       Donations can now be made to the Dr. Evonne H. Whitmore Memorial
Scholarship through the School of Journalism and Mass Comm at Kent State.
Make checks payable to the Kent State Univ. Foundation, KSU/JMC, P.O.B.
5190, Kent, OH 44242, Ref: Dr. Evonne H. Whitmore Memorial Scholarship.

> 2.       The funeral was today so probably the best place to send
condolences to the family is 6150 Second Ave, Kent, OH 44240

> 3.       Questions for Von's Daughter Lauren Whitmore 404-493-0756 or
email [log in to unmask] <javascript:main.compose('new',
[log in to unmask])> .


> What I plan to do is to send a condolence card to the family and a copy of
the emails people have sent to me individually with their graphs about what
Von meant to them, her research, etc.  I will keep a paper copy and provide
that to anyone who is developing a program honoring Von at next year's
conference. When I left on Friday I had something from Dr. Sandra Combs,
Sharon Bramlett-Solomon, as well as one line each from Diana, Petra and
Wanda B.  If others want their graphs sent to the family please send to me
(vs. the listserve) with Honoring Von in the subject line.


> MAC already has the Barrows scholarship that is not too hefty/needs
donations.  I don't know what the Division's budget is but I gather it's
always been very limited.  Rather than drain funds from the Barrows
scholarship (which we should do more fundraising for BTW) I think we should
plan some sort of program tribute to Von for the next annual conference and
give individually to Von's Kent State scholarship if so moved.


> I cannot go to the Winter meeting so I cannot discuss it there.  Petra is
in transition.  Perhaps if through the listserv we could give her and
Felicia some program suggestions Petra, Felicia and Curtis (who will all, I
think, be at the Winter AEJ meeting) can decide and chip bargain then.  What
do you think?
