In Memoriam

Donald Gerth (far right) and family

The University Library remembers and celebrates the life of President Emeritus Donald R. Gerth. In addition to being the longest-serving CSU president, Dr. Gerth was one of the founding members of the Friends of the Library.

"He loved being on campus, basking in author talks and attending as many scholarly presentations and celebrations as his and Bev’s calendar would allow. His good cheer, amazing memory, and storytelling will be missed by all.” - Amy Kautzman, Library Dean
