HUNTSVILLE, Alabama -- Dr. Frank Hale Jr., 84, who was president of Oakwood College in Huntsville from 1966 until 1971, died Wednesday at his home in Columbus, Ohio.
He'll be remembered at what is now Oakwood University for his communication skills and his generosity in mentoring young leaders, said Dr. Mervyn Warren, former interim Oakwood president, who was a student of Hale's at Oakwood in the 1950s and a professor in the religion department when Hale was president."His work was always groundbreaking," Warren said. "He opened the first public relations office the college had. He was energetic, visionary and positive - always positive."Hale's legacy continues in a personal way at Oakwood: His daughter, Dr. Ifeoma Kwesi, is currently a professor in Oakwood's Department of Religion.
