Former School of Mines university President Harvey Fraser passed away Sunday.
Dr. Fraser was the first School of Mines dean of engineering on July 1, 1965.
In 1966, he was appointed as the 13th university president and served until 1975.
In a release, current Mines President Heather Wilson said:
Harvey Fraser was devoted to the School of Mines and served it well. In my few months here I've heard several stories from alumni and faculty about him; all were told with laughter and affection. He will be missed by colleagues, friends and former students. Our thoughts and prayers today are with his family.
