Another life lost due to vasculitis…a disease that is still not really known outside of forums and a few blogs…
This story was reported by the Fort Wayne web page.
A nationally known peace-studies pioneer at Manchester College has died. Professor Emeritus Kenneth L. Brown died Wednesday at the Cleveland Clinic, of complications stemming from vasculitis, an auto-immune disease, according to the university. The North Manchester resident was 77. A memorial service will be planned.
For 25 years, Brown directed the nation’s oldest peace-studies program at Manchester College, serving as a consultant to peace-studies programs around the world. He led study teams to Vietnam, Brazil, Northern Ireland, Haiti, Thailand, India, Jamaica, Colombia, Nicaragua, Mexico and Cuba.
Brown arrived at Manchester in 1961 and retired in 2006. He was an ordained minister in the Church of the Brethren. In 2005, he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Peace and Justice Studies Association. He is survived by his wife, Viona, a daughter and two sons.
Not a lot that I can or should add to this small report.
