Charles F. Angell, professor emeritus at Bridgewater State University, died June 13, 2012, at home in the loving company of his family, after a ten-year battle with cancer. He was the son of the late Charles Francis Angell and Margaret Carlyle Angell of Kingston. Dr. Angell grew up in Plympton and Kingston and graduated from Silver Lake Regional High School, and received his BA from Colby College, and Ph.D from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1974. He spent his entire academic career at Bridgewater State College, now Bridgewater State University, beginning in 1969 as an assistant professor of English. His scholarly specialties were literature of the English Renaissance, rhetoric and composition, and modern fiction. Throughout his long career, he served many leadership roles, serving as the first president of the newly-formed MSCA chapter of the MTA, chairman of the English Department, and chair of numerous governance and search committees. His book reviews for The Bridgewater Review were eagerly anticipated by his many devoted readers for their clarity, erudition, and wit. Dr Angell is remembered for the breadth and recall of his reading. He loved the outdoors, especially coastal Maine and the Alligash. He delighted in hardy political debate at the campus, community, state, and national levels. He was an effective and readily available mentor to young faculty. He is survived by his devoted wife of 47 years, Leslie Ekberg Angell; and their son, Charles Franklin Angell; and his granddaughter, Hadley Estelle Angell of Damariscotta, ME; his brothers William Carlyle Angell of Andover, MA and Jonathan Danforth Angell and his wife, Ann, of Damariscotta, ME; his sisters Barbara Angell Balboni of Plymouth and Louise Angell Spate, of New Harbor, ME; nephews Philip Balboni, Thomas Angell, William Angell, Jr. and Jonathan Angell, and nieces Alida Balboni, Sarah Angell, Jessica Angell and Jessica Angell. A memorial service to which family, friends, colleagues and former students are invited will be held Tuesday, June 26, 2012 at 3 p.m. in the Dunn Conference Suite, East Campus, Bridgewater State University, Bridgewater. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Bridgewater State University Foundation, Office of Institutional Advancement, Boyden Hall, with a notation that funds be directed to the Charles F.
