Commemorative Plaque honoring Professor Hans-Dietrich Meurer who taught at Shippensburg University from 1966 to 2003. I learned German from Professor Meurer, and also acquired a deep appreciation of Bach Cantatas from him, during my senior year in college in 1977. He was a patient, knowledgeable, and skillful educator, who was held in great esteem by his students and colleagues. His great sense of humor kept us all coming to class regularly, despite our early 8:00 a.m. class!

The tree, a Northern Red Oak, is planted in his honor between Kriner Dining Hall and the Huber Art Building. (Photo updated 23 July 2015.) (If anyone has a photo of the tree in its fall colors, please let me know.)
