Friends remember Angell
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
ANGELL TAUGHT freshman seminars
and introductory classes at the
University after he retired. Landecker,
who also studied under Angell, said
"Professor Angell had respect for
students' opinions and he 'was honest
when he taught. If he didn't know the
answer to a question, he would say so,"
Myron Wegman, dean emeritus of the
School of Public Health, agreed. He
said Angell was a "stimulating
teacher" even .when he was in his
Angell was the author of several
publications which include The Campus
(1928), The Integration of American
Society (1941), and The Quest for
World Order (1979).
In addition to his academic
endeavors, Angell was active in the
United Nations Educational Scientific
and Cultural Organization and other
service groups. He was an American
delegate to UNESCO's General
Conferences in 1952 and 1954.
Angell was modestly quiet about his
family's strong ties to the University.
Angell Hall is named for his gran-
dfather, James Burrill Angell, who was.
the University's third president.
His mother's father, Thomas Cooley,
was a Law School dean who is honored
by the fountain next to the Michigan
League. East Quad's Cooley House, is
named for his uncle, Charles Cooley,
who was one of the sociology depar-
tment's original professors.
Angell is survived by his wife,
Esther, and their children, James and
Sarah. A memorial service will be held
at 3 p.m. today at the First
Presbyterian Church, 1432 Washtenaw.
The funeral service will be private."

Cyanide incident isolated
NANITOWOC, Wis. - The death of
a 34-year-old man who drank a bottle
of Coca-Cola that had been spiked
with cyanide appears to be an
isolated incident and there is no
reason for the public to be "uptight"
police said yesterday.
Police Chief LeRoy Strauss and
Manitowoc County District Attorney
Denis Vogel said they have all but
discounted the possibility that the
contamination of the soda that killed
Thomas Dresser occurred at the
Chicago bottling plant where the soft
drink was produced.
Dresser, 34, who died last Thur-
sday after drinking from a 16-ounce
bottle of Coke, was buried yester-

Disarmament Agency reported
