Sympathy to...

* Family and Friends of Larry Colter

Dr. Larry Colter, longtime professor of philosophy at the University, died this past Tuesday, July 10 , in Bozeman, Montana where he had been living for the past several months. After a distinguished career at Illinois Wesleyan, where he served in the Department of Philosophy from 1966-1995 and as director of the Division of Humanities, Larry joined the University of Evansville Community as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences from 1995-2001. He later returned to his first love, teaching philosophy, and served as Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion from 2001-2007 and as professor of philosophy from 2001 to his retirement this past year. Larry was widely published in ethics, the philosophy of language and especially philosophy of mind. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that friends make a contribution to the scholarship fund set up at The University of Evansville in his and his wife Pat’s name. Pat, also a longtime member of the University and Evansville communities, died two years ago. They will both be sorely missed.

The service will be held in Bozeman this Saturday. Reminiscences may be sent to Larry’s daughter, Theresa Thielemen, at her email address:
