Lee A. Graver '31 ,92, died Oct. 3, 2001, in Kirkland Village, Bethlehem, Pa., where he resided. He was a professor and head of the department of history and political science at Kutztown University for 20 years before retiring.

He received a doctorate in history and school administration in 1953 from Rutgers University and an honorary doctor of science degree in 1995 from Muhlenberg. He was also honored with an alumni achievement award in May 2001. An amateur naturalist, Graver developed a 50-acre rare conifer arboretum and nature preserve in Bushkill Twp, Pa., which he and his wife, Virginia (Rapp) Graver, donated to Muhlenberg in 1994. In 1995, they established an endowment fund of more than $1 million for the long-term upkeep of the arboretum and in 1999 they contributed funds which also allowed the college to purchase an adjoining tract of more than 12 acres. Regular classes in biology and environmental sciences are conducted on the property. He is survived by his wife, a brother, Roland, and a sister, Eleanor, both of Bethlehem, Pa. Dr. William W. Longenecker '53 ,was lauded as someone "who solved more than medical problems" at a memorial service in the chapel at the Masonic Homes at Elizabethtown, Pa., on November 7. He was also remembered for his huge laugh. The officiating pastor asked: "Will there be laughter in heaven?" Then, answering his own question, he said, "Yes, because we know that Bill Longenecker will be there." Bill, who was medical director at the Masonic Homes from 1975-97, died November 2. His older daughter died the same day eight years ago. Bill is survived by his wife and a daughter.
