Dr. Art Lee, BSU professor emeritus of history, passes away at 91

Bemidji State professor emeritus of history Dr. Art Lee passed away over the weekend.

BSU says Dr. Lee, the namesake of lecture halls in both Hagg-Sauer Halls, was a faculty member for 36 years, from 1959 until his retirement in 1995.

He was the author of “University in the Pines,” considered the definitive history of BSU, published in 1994 in conjunction with the university’s 75th anniversary.

Dr. Lee passed away Saturday at the age of 91.

A celebration of life service is planned for Oct. 21.
