NOTED EDUCATOR DIES

Chester E. Kellogg, 92, of Derry, New Hampshire, passed away November 19, 1984 at New England Memorial Hospital, Stoneham, Massachusetts, after a brief illness. He was born in Benton Harbor, Michigan, the son of Miles and Ruth (Woods) Kellogg.

He had a long career in education, beginning at Lodi Academy in Lodi, California. He was the founder of the Kellogg Elementary School in Bedford, New Hampshire, and was a principal of South Lancaster Academy in South Lancaster, Massachusetts; Ozark Academy in Gentry, Arkansas; Arizona Academy and the Spanish American School, both in Phoenix, Arizona.

In 1935 Mr. Kellogg became the Business Manager of Atlantic Union College, South Lancaster, Massachusetts. He took this job at a time of financial crisis for the college, assuming his responsibilities at the end of the Depression. He is remembered by a former student of AUC as "roaming the campus, looking for ways to tighten the belt." He was noted for his ambition, and was quoted as saying "Get springs in your heels" showing he expected energy out of those who worked with him. He also was past President of Southwestern Junior College in Keene, Texas, for seven years. After his retirement he was pastor of the Seventh-Day Adventist churches in Manchester, New Hampshire, area.

Also during his retirement he was involved in such projects as being Clerk of the Works for the expansion of Preston Hall at AUC as well as serving as Clerk of the Works for ten years for the new wing of the New England Memorial Hospital and supervisor of their maintenance department.

Survivors include his wife, Clara (Brown) Kellogg; a son, Everett Kellogg of Three Rivers, California: five daughters, Flora Kellogg of Takoma Park, Maryland, Phyllis Winkler of Derry, New Hampshire, Karen Stephen of Warminster, Pennsylvania, Winona Aastrup of Bolton, Massachusetts, and Eloise Thomas of San Antonio, Texas: three brothers, Merle Kellogg of Yucaipa, California, Lloyd Kellogg of South Gate, California, and Miles Kellogg of Douglasville, Georgia; four sisters, Edith Tyrell and Vera Hocking, both of Cleveland, Texas, Erma Kreinkamp of Placerville, California, and Dorothy Dunn of Pope Valley, California: 20 grandchildren: 15 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

Interment was in the Eastwood Cemetery, Lancaster, Massachusetts, where he awaits the call of the Life-giver.
