A former colleague of retired
University Urban Planning Prof.
Norbert Gorwic, who died earlier this
month, described him as a "born
Gorwic, who retired in 1981 after
a career in both industry and
academia, died Nov. 12 in his Ann
Arbor home at the age of 77.
"That's really what he was first
and foremost - a teacher. In that
capacity he was the best that I've
known in the field (of urban plan-
ning)." said Prof. Gerald Crane,
Gorwic's fellow professor and former
Crane said Gorwic delivered his
twice-weekly lectures without notes.
"He was animated... a bit of an ac-

"A very strong social conscience
pervaded everything he said and did,"
Crane said. He had a great "concern
for underprivileged minorities. He
was liberal with a capital 'L'."
One of his former students, U.S.
Representative from Ohio Marcy
Kaptur (D-Toledo), also held Gorwic
in high esteem. "The academic
community has lost one of its
brightest lights. Professor Gorwic

students through his many years of
teaching, including my own."
"His memory will for many years
inspire efforts of those who seek to
make a difference in a life committed
to educating others," she said.
Richard Little, an urban planner
and housing specialist with the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban
Development, also felt Gorwic's in-
fluence. "He had a very profound
impact on me as a student and was
probably the seminal influence in
my career choice."
He said Gorwic centered discus-
sions around slides taken during his
travels. "He was a mixture of the
professorial and the political as well
as the theatrical," he said. "He was
"He really motivated us to think
of the ethical aspect of (urban) plan-
ning," Little added.
Little said he, Gorwic, and Kaptur
had helped to start a University ur-

Gorwic joined the staff of the
University's College of Architecture
and Urban Planning in 1968. He was
