To the Tuck community and all Tuck alumni:

I am writing to tell you about our plans for a memorial service and a memory book for Professor John Shank. In case you did not receive my previous email, and have not heard otherwise about this sad event, Professor John Shank passed away on Thursday, March 30, in California. We invite you to come together at Tuck on May 21 and remember a truly great professor.

Professor Shank affected many students, faculty members, friends, and business leaders over the course of his life and academic career, and we would like to remember him with a service at Tuck. The memorial service in his memory will take place on Sunday, May 21, at the Tuck School (Cohen Great Hall, in Whittemore). There will be an open brunch available in Pepsi Dining Hall from 10-11, and the service will run from 11:30am-1:00 pm. A small group of John's friends and colleagues are organizing the

Please RSVP to this account so that we can estimate attendance. As this is Tuck reunion weekend, we know that many alumni will be in Hanover already; we hope that the timing of this service fits your travel plans as well.

Finally, many people have asked about sending cards and notes that speak to John's influence. We are suggesting that people send hard copy of any such notes to:

Ms. Marcia Diefendorf
100 Tuck Hall
Tuck School
Dartmouth College
Hanover, NH 03755

We will assemble the writings into a book and present them to John's family at the memorial service. Please get your thoughts to us no later than May 12th.

I will keep you updated on any further developments for the memorial service, and will also send out another reminder as we get closer to this event. We look forward to welcoming you to Tuck on May 21 to help us remember our colleague and friend.
