Former department chair, Dr. Thomas J. Keil, has passed away

The Department is sad to report that one of our former Chairs, Dr. Thomas J. Keil has passed away. Tom served as Chair of our department from 1979-1999, when he left to become Dean at the New College at Arizona State University, from which he retired in 2011. Tom was a gifted leader, a memorable teacher, and a prolific scholar and author of over 100 papers and several books, including On Strike! and Romania's Tortured Road Toward Modernity. A partial list of his work is located here:…/6016283_Thomas_J_Keil

Dr. Keil is survived by his wife, Lorraine Keil; daughters, Jaqueline Keil and Deborah Keil Guenthner, and granddaughter, Nora Guenthner.  The family requests that donations be made to Hospice of the Valley (Phoenix) in lieu of flowers.
