CCSU Celebrating Barry Leeds

Dr. Barry Leeds, a longtime favorite in the English Department of Central Connecticut State University, passed away last April. To celebrate his nearly 50 years of service to CCSU, the Department of English is hosting a memorial for Dr. Leeds, to which current faculty, retired faculty, students, friends, and alumni are invited. The event will take place Tuesday, October 6, in the Marcus White living room, from 5 to 7 p.m. This will be an informal venue in which attendees will be invited to share anecdotes and other reminiscences about Dr. Leeds, who was an exemplary teacher, scholar, and mentor for so many through the years. Refreshments will be provided. CCSU is located at 1615 Stanley Street, New Britain, CT 06050-4010.
