Professor Emeritus of Economics Alfred Carlip dies
September 28, 2011Tweet
Professor Emeritus of Economics Alfred B. Carlip died at Wilson Medical Center early Sunday morning, Sept. 25, a few weeks short of his 92nd birthday. Carlip was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and earned his bachelor’s degree from Brooklyn College, a master’s degree from the University of California at Los Angeles and his doctorate from Columbia University.
He joined the economics faculty in 1960, after teaching at Allegheny College in Pennsylvania, and remained a member of the department for the balance of his career. Carlip retired in January 1987, but continued to teach microeconomic theory and industrial organization and public control at Binghamton for a decade thereafter.
A prominent member of the founding generation of Harpur College faculty, Carlip helped to lay the groundwork upon which Binghamton University was built, serving as dean for graduate studies in the 1960s and chair of a University committee charged with codifying standards for tenure in the 1970s.
Widely respected for his fierce advocacy and admired for his warm heart, he chaired and served on many other University committees and governing bodies throughout his career. Details of a planned memorial service on campus will be announced once arrangements have been completed. Gifts in his memory may be made to the Economics Department, Account No. 10775, c/o Binghamton University Foundation, P.O. Box 6005, Binghamton, NY 13902-6005. Note Alfred Carlip in the memo section of your check.
