In Memory

Albert Culver - Class Of 1956

Albert Culver

Albert Culver, 76, passed away January 1, 2015, in Chico, California. After serving in the Army, Albert graduated from California State University, Los Angeles, and began doctoral work in economics at the University of Oregon. He left with his MA for a career in teaching without completing his dissertation.

Albert taught at Oregon State University, Central Michigan University, and for almost 25 years as an instructor in the Economics Department at Chico State University. He was difficult in the classroom - frustrated some and inspired others. Albert was an optimist, a believer in progressive causes, a serious duck hunter, gardener, and dog lover. He was a long-time member of Ducks Unlimited and the California Waterfowl Association and happily volunteered at the Chico Public Library.

Albert is remembered by his many friends in Chico and the "Marietta family" for his good humor, quick wit, appreciation of good wine, and bad dancing.
