Remembering Jack Carlson

The Austin College community is saddened to learn of the death of Dr. Jack Carlson, professor emeritus of history and extends sympathy to his family.

He joined the Austin College faculty in 1962 and served in many capacities, including dean of Humanities and director of the Heritage of Western Culture program, before his retirement in 1994. He regularly led January Term classes to England, exploring the history and architecture of the city or social problems related to the emergency of early England.

Dr. Carlson received many honors during his career, including the College’s Homer P. Rainey Award for outstanding achievement and service. His achievements went far beyond Austin College to leadership in several professional organizations.

Share your memories and condolences.
