Diether Haenicke, former WMU president, dies at 73

A great President and someone who actually mattered to many students at Western in a very personal way.

I was never fortunate to meet him personally, but he authorized a grant for me to attend a writing conference (after being shot down hard by the Dean).

He was intensely dedicated to the University and it and the city were better for it. The entire system–and Kalamazoo in general–has lost one of it’s great advocates.
