      “Kingsley Weatherhead (1923-2011)
      In Memory
      Kingsley Weatherhead
      Kingsley Weatherhead died of cancer August 29, 2011. He was 87. He was born in England, served in the navy there, and then after the war obtained degrees from Cambridge University, University of Edinburgh and, after he came to this country, the University of Washington. His first teaching post was as a professor of English at the then College, now University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington. Later he taught at the new branch of Louisiana State University in New Orleans. From 1960 until he retired in 1989 he taught at the University of Oregon. In 2005, he was honored with an endowed professorship in his name, a gift from Bob and Gloria Lee. He loved bird watching and he loved history. But his great passion, he said, was "the English language"... words and what could be done with them; what could be done with them in modern slang, the new metaphors that grew overnight from new technology; especially what had been done with them in the works of the great poets and prose writers in English; and the terrible injuries they suffered in the vulgar usages in newspapers, television, and common parlance.
      He leaves his wife, Ingrid of Eugene; his daughter, Lyn Kristin of Bergen, Norway; his son, Leslie and daughter-in-law Anali of Spokane; his daughter, Andrea of Seattle; grandchildren: Inge, Emil, Spencer, Madeleine and Audrey.
      We knew him as a gifted writer and scholar, and above all as a kind husband, father, teacher and friend.
      There will be a memorial service at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 10, 2011 at Gerlinger Lounge, 1468 University Street, Eugene, Oregon. The family asks, in lieu of flowers or gifts, that well-wishers consider a memorial gift to the University of Oregon, for the A. Kingsley Weatherhead Professorship in English Endowment Fund (31-7172).”
