The life of Cornell President Emeritus Dale Corson was celebrated at a service September 8 in Sage Chapel including a welcome by President David Skorton, remarks by honored guests and family, and music from the Glee Club and Cornell Chorus.

Corson, who died March 31, was Cornell's eighth president and professor of physics emeritus. He served as president from 1969 to 1977, and was known for leading the university through one of its most turbulent eras, marked by student protests against the Vietnam War and for civil rights.
