Remembering Dr. Delahanty

Dr. Jim Delahanty in the 1978 Mount yearbook.
THE COLLEGE ANNOUNCED THE PASSING last week of Dr. Jim Delahanty,  a faculty member for 40 years in the History/Political Science Department. He was also a member of the Regents Council, and his wife, Jane, is an alumna of the class of 1965.  

The College Archives recently took in a large box of loose papers from Dr. Delahanty's office that has been stored upstairs in Chalon library since he retired in 2000.  It was a treasure trove of material, including meeting notes, correspondence (fan mail from students and a thank-you letter from Cesar Chavez; see a digitized copy on our Twitter feed) and scrapbooks from his years moderating the Model United Nations program in the late 1960s and early 1970s.  

Dr. and Mrs. Delahanty were featured on the Spring 1984 cover of Mount Magazine. More pictures and articles across his four decades at the Mount can be browsed in MSMC's digital archives, including magazines, yearbooks, and campus newspapers. Just type "Delahanty" in the search box.
