Tim Anderson, a Sociology professor who taught at Bentley for 34 years, died on Sept. 11 at age 72. A scholar of Native American culture, Professor Anderson spent time in Montana with the Crow Nation, who adopted him as a brother. He incorporated much of what he learned there in his classes, including the use of a "talking stick" to foster careful listening and mutual respect. He is survived by his wife, Teri, and daughter, Sara '03. Bentley has established the W. Timothy Anderson Scholarship, to be awarded annually to an undergraduate. To donate, note W. Tim Anderson Scholarship Fund here.
