I just spoke to Ardie, Henry Trueba's wife. She informed me that
there will not be a big public memorial for Henry. Instead, there
will be a small funeral with family and a few close friends on Thursday,
July 22. Henry will be buried in a cemetery in the Oxnard/Camarillo
In lieu of flowers, she has told me that friends are invited to make
donations/contributions to either of the following:
T. TRUEBA ENDOWMENT FUND or
THE TRUEBA LIBRARY
Grande Research Center
Frank and Miguel Guajardo are coordinating these two projects.
Funds will be used for student scholarships and internships for
Latino students or those working on topics of interest. The books
will be placed in the Trueba House for the Library where students and the
public can read them or conduct research. I do not have a
phone number for them at this time.
Ardie wanted friends to remember Henry in the way that his life was
celebrated at AERA with the Enrique Henry Trueba Tribute. Nearly
1,000 people were in attendance and saw Henry's taped message to the
audience. There was Mariachi music, tributes and awards for his
lifetime achievement and his life-long work in mentoring students. This
event was video taped for Henry and we are happy that he was able to view
it and know how much he was loved and appreciate while he was still
alive. He told me that he was touched by the tribute and happy to
see many, many of his friends in attendance. He laughed and enjoyed all
the attention we gave him; it was like medicine he said.
We have lost a great scholar, a beloved friend and a tireless mentor.
Those of us who had the privilege of being his students or working with
him have been greatly influenced by his work and been personally touched
by his magnanimous personality. We will remember his kindness,
patience and generosity in helping us through the hard times in graduate
school and his continued support of our research and our careers.
Feel free to pass it on to other.
