Remembering Geography Professor Emeritus Guenter Krumme

Submitted by Nell Gross on

Guenter [Krumme] was a sailor, academician, community volunteer and devoted husband, father and grandfather. Guenter taught as a Professor of economic geography for 38 years at Columbia University in New York City, the University of Hawaii in Honolulu, and the University of Washington School of Arts and Sciences in Seattle. His keen analytical mind challenged colleagues and students alike to embrace new pathways to learning. He was among a cadre of pioneering professors to integrate the internet into his economic geography classes, one of the "early adopters." He was also a prolific author of research and scholarly publications. His life was purpose-ridden as he adjusted his sails throughout his almost 84 years before passing on July 15, 2021.
