Robin Metz, Philip Sidney Post Professor of English and the longest serving member of the Knox faculty, died peacefully in his sleep early in the morning on Tuesday at his beloved Buck Creek Farm in Ferryville, Wisconsin. I will send an obituary and other details as they become available.
In the meantime, Robin’s family has requested that in lieu of flowers gifts may be made to the Robin Metz Fund for Creative Arts, a fund established by Robin and Elizabeth Carlin Metz. The fund will bring to campus an array of poets, fiction writers, play- and screenwriters, essayists, and scholars each year to to ensure that Robin’s passion for exposing Knox students to such talent will live on forever. You can give here.
In deepest sorrow,
