GREENCASTLE, Ind. (WTHI) - Robert H. Farber, a 1935 DePauw graduate who served as an administrator at the University for 42 years, passed away Wednesday in Greencastle.
He was 99 years old.
A Rector Scholar at DePauw, Farber graduated with distinction in 1935, earned the master of arts degree from the University of Chicago in 1940, and the doctor of education degree at Indiana University in 1951.
Farber was appointed dean of the University in 1952, vice president in 1974, and two years later was called upon to serve as DePauw's acting president, a post he held for five months until the appointment of Richard F. Rosser.
Farber retired as vice president and dean of the University in 1979.
"Bob Farber's love of DePauw was unparalleled," said President Brian W. Casey. "I feel privileged to have called him my friend and fortunate to have had so many opportunities to visit with him over the past few years."
