GLASER--Milton. The Cooper Union mourns the passing of Milton Glaser, Trustee Emeritus, former faculty member, and a 1951 graduate of Cooper's School of Art. Mr. Glaser, with several of his Cooper classmates, co-founded Pushpin Studios, a graphic design studio that helped define the modern era, before setting out on his own. A prolific designer, known for his iconic "I [Heart] NY" logo, he influenced and educated generations of designers in the practice of graphic design and its ability to effect positive social change. A generous donor and recipient of the President's Citation, we are grateful to Mr. Glaser for his commitment to education and his countless campaigns to raise awareness for humanitarian issues. Our condolences go to his wife, Shirley Glaser, a 1956 alumna of Cooper's School of Art. The school will hold a virtual event to honor his life later this summer. Rachel L. Warren, Board Chair and Laura Sparks, President

I got a chance to know him a little in 2000 when I was lucky enough to attend his intensive summer workshop. Amazing guy. Lessons learned in that week live on. Thank you Milton!

I flew into New York for the first time late Friday night in 1976 and called Mr. Glazer's office that day. He was working late and answered the phone and said, 'come on up.' He looked at my portfolio and say I was welcomed into his class. With gratitude and tears I thank you and may God Bless you, dear Sir.

I am a New Yorker who recently relocated whenever I see someone wearing that logo it brings a smile to my face what a talented man will surely be missed. May the God of comfort and tender mercies strengthen and comfort the family now and in the days to come
