Carolyn R. Dexter, 72, a faculty member of Pennsylvania State University at Harrisburg and specialist in the role of women, has died.
She had been a faculty member for 30 years at Penn State Harrisburg, where she was the first woman named professor of management. She edited several journals and books, and was published in leading journals and was active in presenting papers. Her research focused on the role of women in managment and the impact of global forces on managment.
"We will feel her loss because we had been touched by her life of dedication and service that spanned over 30 years as a scholar and a teacher," Mukund Kulkarni, director of Penn State Harrisburg's School of Business Administration, said in a prepared statemant. "She was a popular teacher and admired by her colleagues for her intelligence, pride and courage. She has left a long lasting legacy in her profession."
Dexter, 72, of Harrisburg, died Monday in Harrisburg Hospital.
She was a two time president of the Academy of Managment and had been president of the Eastern Academy of Managment and the International Federation of Scholarly Associations of Managment, both of which she was influential in establishing. She held various offices in the American Sociological Society.
A native of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., she was a graduate of St. Lawrence University and earned a Ph.D. degree from Columbia University. She was founder and adviser of Sigma Iota Epsilon honor society at Penn State Harrisburg, where she coordinated the Downtown Lecture Series; often lectured abroad; was co-founder of the Central Pennsylvania Chapter, American Marketing Association; active in Historic Harrisburg Association inc.; and a past president and acting vice president of the Capitol Area Neighbors Association.
There are no immediate survivors.
Memorial services will be held at noon Friday in the Student Center of the Capital Union Building at Penn State Harrisburg's Lower Swatara Twp. campus. Burial will be in Randolph (Mass.) Central Cemetery.
