Donald L. Mullett held a number of positions in higher education.
Mullett died on Friday, April 19, 2013. He was 84.
He was born on April 10, 1929 to Festus and Josephine Mullett. He was the youngest of four children. He grew up in New York City where he was a member of Ephesus Seventh Day Adventist Church.
Family values were important to him. His family said he talked about how lovingly strict his father was and how his mother could stretch a dollar during the Great Depression.
All of this, he said, helped him appreciate the blessings and good fortune he attained in life.
He attended New York City public schools and graduated from Commerce High School in 1947.
