Memorial service planned for Gerlinde Ulm Sanford Nov. 9
Gerlinde Ulm Sanford, a German scholar-teacher of international repute, will be memorialized in a public service on Tuesday, Nov. 9, at 4 p.m. in Syracuse University’s Hendricks Chapel. The program includes music by Mozart and Mahler, as well as readings and remembrances by members of The College of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics (LLL), with which Sanford was affiliated.
The service is being organized by Arts and Sciences Dean George M. Langford, who will host a public reception afterward in the Killian Room (room 500) of the Hall of Languages. For more information, call (315) 443-2201.
Sanford joined the LLL faculty in 1969, eventually rising to the rank of professor and to chair of the department. Also, she served as the German Program Coordinator and briefly directed SU Abroad programs in Vienna, Florence, and Strasbourg, a position that earned her SU’s Distinguished Service Award. She died on Tuesday, April 27, at the age of 70, following a long illness.
