Perhaps it is a measure of devotion to the University that his passing 
happened beyond the end of the regular academic year in the summer session.

There's an actuarial science research project: Do teachers and faculty 
members die in patterns statistically distinct from other occupations?  
Specifically, are their dates of death more often outside of the school 
term than random chance would indicate?

Some U.S. Presidents -- Adams and Jefferson, both in 1826, and Monroe, 
in 1831, and a near-president, William L. Marcy, in 1857, died on the 
4th of July.  Other persons also died on July 4th, perhaps indicating 
their devotion to the nation.  Charles Kuralt, in 1997, and Jesse Helms, 
in 2008, come to mind.  Correlation or happenstance?
