Professor Frank RhodesProfessor Frank Rhodes (1927 - 2020)

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing on 3rd February 2020 of Professor Frank Rhodes at the age of 93. Professor Rhodes was a Honorary Fellow of Robinson College and a great friend and supporter of the College over the years. He was a distinguished paleontologist and was the President of Cornell University from 1977 till 1995. He will be sorely missed by Robinson's members and warmly remembered for his invaluable support of teaching of Music and English especially during the early formative years of the College.
