After eight extraordinary productive years as chair of Colby's Board of Trustees, Larry Pugh '56 runs up against the term limit at the end of June. He will continue to serve on the board but will pass the gavel to Jim Crawford '64, who takes over as chair July 1.

Asked to sum up Pugh's major accomplishments in a brief quote, President Bill Cotter, who is not a loquacious man, talked until three notebook pages were filled. The success of two capital campaigns, the strength of Colby's Board of Trustees, more than 20 faculty chairs endowed on Pugh's watch, the collegial relationship between the trustees and the faculty, and physical improvements on campus in the past decade- all can be traced to Pugh's leadership, Cotter says.
