James E. Parsons '58 , on February 10, 2006, after a long struggle against complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was sixty-nine and a resident of La Jolla, California.
Jay earned his BA in English, cum laude, from Kenyon, where he studied under John Crowe Ransom and his advisor was Denham Sutcliffe. He won the De Rothchild Foundation and the Robert Frost poetry prizes. He was president of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity and was active in drama club. He was also a member of the football, swimming, and lacrosse teams. He studied philosophy at Brandeis University, and received his PhD in Elizabethan-Jacobean drama from the University of Rochester, New York.
Jay was a scholar and a gentleman. He had a brilliant mind, and his sardonic wit often puzzled those who took what he said literally. His passion was reading, and he was an avid supporter of the La Jolla Library. He was a professor in the College of Letters at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, and in the English department at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts. His real love was scholarly research, and he worked at the Houghton Library at Harvard with a team of colleagues, collating and editing the manuscripts and journals of Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Jay is survived by his wife. Donations are suggested to the University of California San Diego Foundation, School of Medicine, or the American Lung Association.
Frederick Lewis Snider '63 , on April 22, 2005, of respiratory failure. He was sixty-three and a resident of Prague, Czech Republic.
Fred was a scholar of Czechoslovakian history and lover of Czech culture whose accomplishments were so respected in that country that, as of March 2006, his posthumous installation into the prestigious Historical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences was pending. As a young graduate student living in Prague during the "Prague Spring," he also became a personal witness to, and participant in, Czech history.
A history major at Kenyon, Fred did graduate work at the University of California, Berkeley, where he studied under the renowned visiting Czech professor Josef Polisensky of Charles University in Prague. Fred earned his MA at Berkeley in 1964. He received his PhD in central European history in 1973. The degree was awarded by both Berkeley and Charles University, and his dissertation was published simultaneously in English and Czech--a fact that reflected his fluency in Czech. (A talented linguist, Fred also spoke French, German, and Spanish. In Czech, his accent and idiomatic usage were indistinguishable from those of native speakers.)
He had perfected his Czech during three years in Prague in the late 1960s, where he was studying. He lived through the "Prague Spring" in 1968, when a liberalization movement was crushed by the Soviets. Fred did what he could to help his Czech friends and acquaintances. At substantial personal risk, he transported the children of a Czech citizen in his Volkswagen to a designated northern border crossing, to smuggle them out of the country.
During the dark period of Soviet repression following the thwarted rebellion, Fred's Czech friends found his wisdom, attentiveness, and help a constant source of hope and inspiration. Later, as a professor at Ohio State University, Fred arranged and personally funded exhibitions in the United States, and particularly in Ohio, of Czech artists of that late-Communist period.
Fred taught at Ohio State for ten years and played a leading role in establishing the study of central European history there. After leaving Ohio State, he and Kenyon classmate Michael Tannhauser '64 operated a private language school in Miami, Florida. With the help of many Latin American friends there, in 1985 Fred moved to Asunción, Paraguay, where he ran an English-language school.
In 1990, he returned to Prague, where he was well-known to members of the academic and artistic communities. In his later years, he was fully occupied with teaching English at the Czech Academy of Sciences, translating, and making regular visits to the States. His pedagogical technique was so subtle and effective that one of his best students, a Czech nuclear physicist, never realized that Fred also spoke flawless Czech. By birth and background, Fred would always be an American, but his intimate involvement in Czech society and culture had imbued him with the desire to end his days there.
At the time of his death, Fred was the leading authority on the formative period of Bohemian history following the Thirty Years War and the Battle of Bila Hora (White Mountain) near Prague in the early seventeenth century. He authored numerous articles on Czech history and did authoritative Czech-English translations, among them Polisensky's definitive History of Czechoslovakia in Outline . Among Fred's other historical works is his history of Charles University, commissioned by that institution.
Fred is survived by two sisters, Sarah Morton of Coronado, California, and Lucy O'Connor of San Francisco, California; a niece, Kirstin Ridgway, of San Francisco; a goddaughter, Adelia Gregory, of Columbus, Ohio; and many devoted friends on three continents.
Arthur M. Jackson III, 1969 , on April 10, 2006, after a long battle with kidney disease. He was fifty-eight and a resident of San Francisco, California.
Arthur attended Kenyon from 1965 to 1967. He studied political science and earned a letter playing soccer.
A successful San Francisco businessman and longtime civic leader despite years of debilitating illness from kidney disease, Arthur was active on city commissions, charitable foundations, and his employment agency right up until the day of his death. He served on the San Francisco Health Commission for seven years and was its president from 1994 to 1996, a time of tight budgets, when the city's public health system was deep in the throes of hospitalizations and deaths from the AIDS epidemic.
A self-made man who won respect and friends in the highest political circles of San Francisco, Arthur was remembered by his admirers for his public service, kind demeanor, and unflinching optimism. "In my political life, I have met thousands of people. Arthur was like a brother to me," said former San Francisco Supervisor Angela Alioto. Arthur sat on the Mayor's Council for a Ten-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness, a panel headed by Alioto. "He was president of the health commission during its toughest time, and he always did the best for the people who were sick, as opposed to doing what might politically advance him," Alioto said.
Arthur ran unsuccessfully for the Board of Supervisors in 2002, against incumbent Chris Daly. He served on the boards of several foundations and organizations, among them San Francisco Suicide Prevention, Hamilton Family Shelter, the San Francisco Senior Center, and the San Francisco Black Chamber of Commerce. He was chairman of the San Francisco United Way Campaign in 1995 and 1996. Most recently, he was president of the city's Taxi Commission, to which he was appointed by Mayor Gavin Newsom in January 2002. "Arthur M. Jackson will always be remembered for his remarkable and inspirational service to the community, as a commissioner and a small-business pioneer," Newsom said.
Born in Chicago and raised for most of his childhood years at Westtown School, a Quaker boarding school outside of Philadelphia, Arthur made his way to San Francisco after attending Kenyon. At the age of twenty-threee, he started his own employment agency, Jackson Personnel Agency, which is widely recognized as one of the most successful African-American-owned businesses in California. The San Francisco Black Chamber of Commerce named it Business of the Year in 1998.
San Francisco Realtor Margel Kaufman, who served on the health commission with Arthur and counted him among her closest friends, said his positive outlook on life and his compassion for others was rooted in his Quaker upbringing. "He lived his philosophy. He took his job seriously and made the city a better place," she said. Arthur was first appointed a health commissioner from 1992 to 1996 by Mayor Frank Jordan, and later from 2001-2002 by Mayor Willie Brown. Kaufman said Arthur seldom missed a meeting and never complained about his health problems, which dated back to his childhood. He spent up to six hours a day several days a week in kidney dialysis. He was a regular at the dialysis unit of California Pacific Medical Center, and always took the time to counsel those who were new to the procedure. After waiting years for a kidney transplant, he finally received one in 2002. When the transplant failed, he did not complain.
Arthur served for the past two years on the board of the National Kidney Foundation of Northern California. Board President Kevin Kitchin said Mr. Jackson was "charitably inclined, and gave much more back to the community than most."
Memorials may be made to the National Kidney Foundation of Northern California, 131 Steuart Street, Suite 520, San Francisco, California 94105.
Paul K. Aono '71 , on April 21, 2006. He was fifty-seven and a resident of Honolulu, Hawaii.
Paul earned his BA in mathematics from Kenyon in 1971. Following his graduation, he was a teacher with the Hawaii Association for Retarded Citizens, from 1971-1979. Paul earned his MEd from the University of Hawaii-Manoa in counseling and guidance in 1981, and had worked as a psychological examiner for the State Department of Education, Honolulu District, since 1981. On a Kenyon alumni questionnaire in 1973, he listed his hobby as "searching for the truth."
Paul is survived by his wife, Elaine Shiozawa; his mother, Marguerite; and sister, Dorothy.
David R. Harbison '75 , on July 5, 2006. He was fifty-three and a resident of Briarcliff Manor, New York.
Dave passed away suddenly the evening of July 5, 2006, on the eleventh anniversary of the death of his father, David Harbison '48 . In the eulogy for his brother, George Harbison '76 wrote, "After high school, Dave followed in the footsteps of my father and Larry [another brother], and in 1971 enrolled at Kenyon College in Ohio. At Kenyon, Dave joined the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity, majored in economics, and continued to display his athletic prowess, excelling on Kenyon's golf and wrestling teams. We are so appreciative of the love and support we have received from Dave's Kenyon friends as we grieve over his death. Dave loved Kenyon, and many times through the years he told me that the friends he made while he was a student there so many years ago were among the best friends he had ever made.
"In 1993, after one of the longest engagements in American history, Andrea and Dave finally got married. In 1999, Dave and Andrea adopted their son, Robert. Dave was a proud and doting father. For those of you in contact with Dave over the past several years, you undoubtedly know all about Robert's exploits in Cub Scouts, soccer, school, and swimming.
"As many of you know, Dave loved golf, and he was an exceptional golfer. As the old golf axiom says, you can tell a great deal about a person by the way they conduct themselves on the golf course. In addition to being a champion on the course, Dave was also respectful, caring, giving, honest, fun, and disciplined. His conduct on the course truly reflected the content of his soul. Dave's tremendous sense of humor was always present, but never more so than when he was on the golf course. Once when I was playing with him and not playing very well (which was often), he said to me that he had detected a slight flaw in my game. Intrigued, I asked what that flaw was. With a straight face he responded, 'You're too close to the ball after you hit it.'"
After graduating from Kenyon, for many years Dave was a foreign-exchange trader for various banks in New York City and, briefly, Chicago. After surviving the World Trade Center disaster, he worked for Citigroup in mutual fund compliance.
Dave is survived by his wife, Andrea; son, Robert; mother, Nancy; brothers, Lawrence Harbison '72 , John Harbison '79 , and George Harbison '76 ; and sister, Grace.
Timothy Heaton McKee '75 , on April 12, 2006. He was fifty-three and a resident of Boston, Massachusetts.
Tim majored in studio art. After graduation, he moved to Boston, where he worked as a chauffeur for the Ritz Carlton Hotel and ultimately established and operated Boston Proper Limousine Service. Tim's skillful driving and considerable knowledge of art and New England history provided memorable tours for his clients. Among his family, Tim sparked many a lively conversation with his passion for antique cars and wooden boats. His seven nieces and nephews looked to Uncle Tim as a source of humor and fun.
Tim is survived by his foster son, Dan Allan, to whom he was devoted; his siblings, Anne Rex and her husband, Robert, of Charlotte, North Carolina; Lisa Nedelman of Mission Viejo, California; and Caleb Lodge McKee and his wife, Mia, of Naples, Florida. Friends may contribute to a scholarship fund at Camp Kawanhee in Weld, Maine, where Tim spent many happy summers in his youth. Donations may be sent to the George and Raymond Frank Foundation, P.O.
