Memorial Service for Marshall Grossman

April 26, 2011
4:00 - 5:00 PM
David C. Driskell Center

The Department of English at the University of Maryland held a memorial service for our esteemed colleague, Professor Marshall Grossman, on Tuesday, April 26, from 4-5 p.m. at the gallery of the David C.  Driskell Center in the Cole Student Activities Building on the University campus. This service was open not only to all members of the University community but to all other colleagues, friends, former students, and associates of Professor Grossman.

Because Marshall did not wish to have a religious observance, the service consisted of recollections, reflections, and comments from attendees about Marshall and the profound contribution that he made to our work and to our lives. Of course, anecdotes about Marshall's legendary sense of humor were also be welcome. Attendees had the opportunity to speak spontaneously about Marshall.
