I Love Leland

Leland Harris, a beloved professor who taught chemistry at Knox for 29 years, passed way in June 2007. One of his former students submitted this photo to Knox's archives after his passing. The photo was taken on "Chrome Dome Day" in spring 1982.

Knox alumni helped us identify Professor Harris's biggest fans:
