In Loving Memory of Prof. Lee Burchinal

lee Memorial

Prof. Lee Burchinal (1927 - 2019) was a dedicated lecturer, publisher, and friend to Ahfad University for Women. He taught Social Research Methods and Introduction to Statistics; throughout his years at AUW he established the Ahfad Journal: Women and Change (1984). Prof. Burchinal believed in the importance of education and the role education can play in transforming society, hence, his establishment of the Sudan-American Foundation for Education (SAFE) in 1985. The foundation provided over 300,000 books and publications to universities’ libraries in Sudan and AUW was the linking partner, receiving, sorting, and organising Book Exhibitions for librarians of Sudanese universities.
Prof. Lee Burchinal will be greatly missed by all his loving AUW family. May his soul rest in peace.
