Dorothy Drummond died on November 30, 2018 as the result of a fall in the Three Gorges Dam Museum while doing field work in China. She was 89 years old. Dorothy was born in San Diego in 1928, received her undergraduate degree from Valparaiso University in 1949, and a Master's degree from Northwestern University in 1951. She traveled widely; taught at Indiana State University and Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College; founded the Geography Educator's Network of Indiana (GENI); and authored two Political Geography books on Israel and co-authored four World Culture textbooks. Employing her training and expertise in geography and geographic methodology, Dorothy was active in service to many non-profit organizations including Bread for the World, United Campus Ministries, and Citizens for Better Government. "She walked purposefully through life," reported one colleague.

A panel of five longtime colleagues and friends will reflect upon her influence on geography education and geography awareness in Indiana and the nation. Panel members include Joseph Stoltman, Judy Bock, James Speer, Frederick Bein, and E. Nicole DePue. General audience discussion will be encouraged.
