The following is a message from W&M President Katherine A. Rowe on the passing of Colin G. Campbell L.H.D. ’13.

The William & Mary community is deeply saddened by the passing of Colin G. Campbell L.H.D. ’13. Mr. Campbell, longtime president and CEO of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, was such a trusted partner and friend of the university. He was a force for good in Williamsburg and helped establish the strong legacy of partnership between our institutions that lives on today. Mr. Campbell served on the W&M Board of Visitors. In 2008 he and his wife, Nancy, were honored with the Prentis Award, the highest honor given to members of our community for civic engagement. He will be missed by so many across our campus.
