MSU’s 11th president, he spent 16 of his 42 years in education at the University. Coming to the campus in 1960 as an associate professor and department chair, he served as dean of the College of Applied Science and Technology. After serving at other institutions, he returned as president in 1987 where his five year tenure was devoted to enrollment increase, regional centers, and modernizing residence halls and campus utilities. He and his wife, Wilma, were conferred “honorary alumnus” status and named to the Alumni Hall of Fame. On campus, Grote-Thompson Hall bears his name.
