Professor William Derby

The department would like to extend its condolences to the family of Professor Emeritus Bill Derby, who passed away on July 26, 2013. Professor Derby retired from a position in the History Department at Geneseo in 1993 after 35 years at the College. By all accounts, he was a remarkable colleague and friend to many in the department and Geneseo community. He will most certainly be missed.

Professor Derby's obituary can be found here. Bill Cook also wrote a very moving reflection on Professor Derby's life for the Livingston County News, which can be found here.
