iSchool Prof. Schramm Remembers Late Professor
In early September, John P. White, an integral part of the Syracuse community passed away. He was a faculty member, leader and much more. He is remembered by his former student and current iSchool University Professor Carl Schramm.
“Taking an economics course from him changed my life. He had an inspiring classroom presence — a teacher who worked so hard to successfully bring students to difficult insights that his students reciprocated with hard work, implicitly not wanting to somehow disappoint him,” Schramm wrote in a commentary for Syracuse.com. “Looking back, his magic seemed like a combination of Socrates’ skill at communicating a love of learning with the firm but embracing command presence for which White’s other alma mater, the Marine Corps, is famous.”
