Eugene K. MacColl ’47

Published in the Apr.25, 2012, issue

Kim MacColl died in his sleep Aug. 31, 2011, in his beloved Portland, Ore. He was 86.

Kim prepared at St. Paul’s School before joining the Class of ’47. He was commissioned in the Navy as an ensign and served in the Pacific theater.

Upon his return to the States, he completed his undergraduate work at Princeton, earned a master’s degree in history from the University of Colorado, and earned a doctorate from UCLA.

Moving to Oregon, Kim began a lifetime career as teacher, faculty head, and published scholar. He wrote a significant number of books and professional papers, many of them about his adopted state.

Kim is survived by Leeanne, his wife of 64 years; sons Kim and his wife, Melinda Bishop, and Craig and his wife, Ann Heistand; and daughters Gwynne Campbell and her husband, Douglas, and Alexandra Buckley and her husband, Geoff. The class sends sympathy to Kim’s family and his many friends.
