KAPLAN--Stanley H. President Gregory H. Williams and the faculty, students, staff and alumni of The City College of New York are deeply saddened by the death of alumnus Stanley H. Kaplan, B.S. '39, magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, M.S.E. '41. Mr. Kaplan was one of the College's most dedicated and generous alumni and a member of the President's Circle. He served on the Boards of the City College 21st Century Foundation, City College Fund and City College Alumni Association, which in 1986 bestowed upon him the Townsend Harris Medal, its highest honor. In 1988, City College awarded him the Doctor of Humane Letters degree, Honoris Causa, for his groundbreaking work in the field of education. A dedicated son of City College, in 2004 Mr. Kaplan created the Stanley H. Kaplan Institute for the Advancement of Mathematics Education in the Middle School at his alma mater. To date more than 200 mathematics assistant principals, coaches and teacher leaders have been trained directly by the program. More than 1,000 middle school math teachers have benefited from this program, in turn impacting mathematics instruction for more than 100,000 students. In 1991, he endowed the City College Fund's Stanley H. Kaplan Scholarship. Stanley Kaplan represented the best of the best of our City College graduates and went on to a distinguished career that touched students across the nation. His strong support made him invaluable to the renaissance at City College. Our deepest condolences to his: wife, Rita; daughters, Susan B. Kaplan and Susan Kaplan Belsky; son-in-law, Mark Belsky; grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
