Gertrude McKeon, who taught chemistry at the College from 1952 until 1992, died Aug. 27 at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital in New London. She was 83.
McKeon, the Margaret W. Kelly Professor of Chemistry, joined the faculty after receiving her Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Yale. She played an integral role in educating many science majors during her 40 years of teaching.
“Trude was a strong, supportive and humble colleague who always worked toward the best interests of Connecticut College, the chemistry department, and its students,” the department said in its newsletter.
