My condolences to the family and to all who knew John. We knew each other as graduate school classmates, as research colleagues, and as members of the NC Academy of Sciences. John was so committed to his scientific endeavors and to his students - he will be missed.

His light will shine all over the Globe where he touched so many individuals, and communities with his intellect and spirit!

My deep condolences to the Family and Close Friends!

It is with a heavy heart and sadness to give condolences to Dr. Clamp's family.. He was my mentor and confidant during my tenor at NCCU! The great memories are numerous, professional and private. Again condolences from Anthony and the Cooley family. May God Bless you in this time of mourning.

John was a fellow colleague and I worked with him for many years at NCCU, while I chaired the Department and subsequent to that. I admired his attention to detail and it served us well when we were going through much curriculum development. I highly respected his knowledge and love for ecology and entomology. John was a great advocate for faculty rights and his clarion voice will be missed.

I'm so sorry to hear this news. Dr. Clamp taught me zoology at NCCU and I appreciated his care and desire to encourage minority students to consider a career in research. Although I didn't choose that path, I know many of my classmates who did. He will be missed.

I worked with John for many years at NCCU. I respected the fact that he cared about students and their education. He was a fierce advocate for Academic Freedom and cultivated an environment in which students were nurtured, mentored, and became leaders. He left a mark here and will be missed.

Dr. Clamp will be missed, I enjoyed working with him. My prays are with the family. RIP, Faithful Servant.
