Longtime Claremont McKenna Professor Langdon Elsbree, who continued teaching part-time at the College beyond his official 34 years on the faculty, died early Saturday morning, June 21, at the age of 84, two days before his 85th birthday.
A public memorial service honoring Elsbree ("A Celebration of Life") has been set for 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 23 in Manor Hall at Claremont Manor, 650 Harrison Ave., Claremont. Parking is available at The Claremont Friends Meetinghouse, across the street: 727 Harrison Ave.
The Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) has named Claremont McKenna College’s Crown Challenge, a revolutionary strategy to maximize the impact of donor gifts, as a recipient of its top award among nationwide annual giving programs.

Dear CMC Community,
It is with heavy hearts that we must report the sad news that Trustee Bart Evans ’70 died on Wednesday, May 14, after a long fight against pancreatic cancer. We want his wife Andrea to know that our prayers and support are with her during this especially difficult time.
