Miami University President Emeritus Phillip Shriver died Saturday evening. He was 88-years-old.

Shriver served as president from 1965 to 1981 and retired from teaching in 1998. Shriver used to tell the story of Ronald Tammen as part of his Miami Mysteries lecture.

The reporter interviewed Shriver for a story in Miami’s yearbook, the Recensio in 2008. Shriver was passionate and generous in giving his time to tell the story.

Funeral arrangements are pending. The News and Information Office will be releasing an obituary tomorrow morning, according to Director Claire Wagner. A preliminary article was posted earlier today.

Rest in peace, Dr. Shriver. You will be missed.
