The Passing of W. Ed Crane

The faculty and staff of the Langdale College of Business mourn the passing of Mr. W. Ed Crane. Mr. Crane chaired and was instrumental in the success of the first constituent fund-raising campaign at VSU: the Pound Hall Renovation Fund.  This campaign was very successful as it raised over $1.3 million...which was supplemented with state funds to accomplish the original Pound Hall renovation (there have been some less extensive renovations since then). We honored Ed and Mary by naming the plaza between Pound and Thaxton for noted on the plaque mounted on the plaza.  We celebrated the rededication of the renovated Pound Hall in February 1993.
The funeral will be Tuesday, September 8th at 2:00p.m. at Carson-McLane Funeral Home.
