A tree-planting ceremony was held in memory of Professor Emeritus of History Robert McJimsey on Oct. 4 on the north side of Palmer Hall in the Tutt Quad. The tree, a mountain ash, was a gift from the history department in honor of a colleague and friend. McJimsey, who joined CC’s history department in 1968, specialized in British history and early modern Europe.   He passed away on Sept. 3, 2009.
