In Memory of Professor Emeritus Cecil G. Gouke

May 22, 2013

Dr. Gouke was one of the founding members of the African American and African Studies Department, where he served as an accomplished professor, great advocate and mentor to students, and valued colleague for most of the 1970’s through 1990’s. Professor Gouke was one of the first African American economics professors hired at OSU. African American and African Studies, then known as the Black Studies Department, benefited from his expertise and research, and from his generosity. His legacy will continue to live on through the many lives he touched.
