Professor Adams' Obituary:

Kerney M. Adams, 90, Richmond, retired history professor at EKU, died Jan. 29, 1989 after a long illness.

He started his professional career at Eastern when it was a normal school in 1922. He obtained his undergraduate degree at the University of Ky. in 1925. He graduated with a masters degree at Cornell University in 1928 where he was graduate assistant of Dr. Carl Becker..

He taught at EKU from 1928-1969 and was chairman of the department of history from 1953-1965. He retired from Eastern Ky. University in 1969.

During his tenure as a teacher, many articles were piblished in leading scholastic journals, which included the journal of Teacher Education, Journal of Higher education, Journal of General Education, and the Journal of Social Philosophy and Jurisprudence. The most innovative instructional programs that were significant professional achievements were his launching and teaching of the History of Western Civilization and his Introduction of the Ideological Foundations of western Civilization.

The EKU Board of Regents named a lecture hall in the Wallace Building in his honor, and his colleagues and former students established a history scholarship in his name.
