Harold L. Dibble Mini-Me Fund

In memory of his outstanding career and mentorship, the society is establishing the Harold L. Dibble Mini-Me Fund to assist students and colleagues with limited access to monies with the expenses of attending the annual meeting of the society.

The title of the fund acknowledges that Harold was more than just a teacher to his students, he was a friend and mentor who supported them with unwavering conviction and respected their choices.  Harold’s unique ability to water his relationships with his numerous students has led to a proliferation of mini-me’s, as he affectionately referred to himself in relation to his own mentors. We hope that this fund will continue to support mini-me’s in the future.

With respects to Harold’s final wishes there will be no funeral. We are planning to hold a celebration of his life at the Penn Museum sometime in the fall with more details to be announced as we know more.

We wish to thank all of Harold’s friends and colleagues who have contacted us or posted their thoughts and memories of Harold on social media. We have been deeply touched by the shear number of people who have expressed such amazing warmth and heart-felt support in this difficult time.
