R. Keith Martin

September 2010

Dr. Martin, professor emeritus of information systems, dean of the Dolan School of Business for eleven years, and first holder of the Stephen and Camille Schramm Chair in Business, died at his home in Litchfield surrounded by family on August 31 following a brave struggle with cancer.

Dr. Martin came to Fairfield in the fall of 1979. He served as the first associate dean of the School of Business, and was made dean in 1982. After resigning the deanship in 1993, he continued as full professor until his retirement in 2005.

Dr Martin is survived by his loving family: his wife, Carolyn; two sons: Jefferson of Sharon, CT and Sean of Woodinville, WA; two daughters: Jennifer Martin Silva of Cleveland, OH and Katherine Primerano of Yorktown Heights, NY; and eight grandchildren.

A memorial service in the Fairfield University Egan Chapel followed by a luncheon reception was held on Saturday, September 25.
