Memorial Celebration for Bronxville Resident C. Lowell Harriss to Be Held at Columbia University this Sunday, April 11 PDF Print Email

April 7, 2010:  A special memorial celebration will be held on Sunday, April 11 in honor of C. Lowell Harriss, Professor Emeritus of economics at Columbia University.  The celebration will take place from 10:00 AM to 12:00 noon on the 15th floor of the International Affairs Building on 420 West 118th Street at Columbia University.

Harris, a longtime resident of Bronxville, died peacefully in his Bronxville home of 59 years on Dec. 14, 2009 after a short illness.  He was 97 years old at the time.  His wife, Agnes, predeceased him in 1992.

His interests were wide-ranging.  In addition to his first love of teaching (he taught economics from 1936 until mandatory retirement in 1982, then served as executive director of the Academy of Political Science until 1987), he enjoyed travel, museums, art, history, a good mystery, and P.G. Wodehouse.

Frequently seen walking from his Hill Top home to the village business district or the train station, he actively and generously supported the lives of his family, grandchildren, friends and colleagues, and students throughout his entire life.

He greatly appreciated the positive impact that humor or a smile could make—in a day, or in a lifetime.  Always a gentleman, he made friends everywhere of all interests and ages.

His family would love to hear any memories you might have of him.  Any correspondence may be sent to:  The Harriss Family, 23 Village Lane, Bronxville, NY 10708.

All friends and neighbors are invited to attend the service, but an RSVP is requested to CLOAKING , or to Martha Harriss at 212-666-9005.

Gifts in honor of Lowell Harriss may be sent C/O Leah Cohen, Columbia University, 622 West 113th Street, New York, NY 10025.
