Dr. Stanley W. Wollock

Dr. Stanley W. Wollock passed away July 31, 2018 at the age of 87 while holding hands with his loving family. Stan was an art, creativity, and teacher educator for almost 60 years in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, 50 years of that time spent as a professor at William Paterson University. Upon retirement, Stan earned the title Professor Emeritus. Prior to his time at WPU, he was an art teacher at Somerville High School. While at William Paterson, he was an adjunct professor at NYU, directed an alternate route teaching program for the New Jersey State Department of Education, and served in leadership roles in many other successful educational programs and summer camps. Under a grant from the Terrell Foundation, he established and conducted a residential prison teacher education program with Edna Mahan at the Clinton Correctional Facility for Women. During the Korean War, he served for the US Army as a medical illustrator/instructional designer and was recalled as a reservist into the US Air Force during the Bay of Pigs invasion.

Stan was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA where he attended Simon Gratz High School. He earned his bachelor's from Kutztown University, his master's from Western Maryland College, and his doctorate from New York University. He is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Claire. Also surviving him are his son, Michael Wollock, DMD, his wife Leslie and their four children Reid, Avery, Hayden, and Drew; his daughter Amy Wollock, JD; his nieces and nephews Erica, Bex, Tom, Max, Gavin, Erica, Marc, and Josh; and his sister- and brothers-in-law Irene, Stewart, and Paul.
