On Saturday, Sept. 17, the Emory community lost a friend, professor and colleague in Ivan Karp.
"Dr. Karp will greatly be missed by all that knew and worked with him," said Dean Lisa A. Tedesco in a message to the Laney Graduate School community. "He was a major figure in many fields and revolutionized the study of African studies, museum studies and public scholarship. He was a dedicated scholar committed to the advancement of graduate education in service of the public good. We are proud to honor his memory and service."
