Kemper, '33 The 2004 Posthumous Award is being presented to the family of Claude Kemper. This award honors Claude's distinguished life as a master woodcarver and his dedication to Glenville State College. Claude was best known in West Virginia as the carver of'"Birds of My Hollow," a collection of 45 bird spe- cies indigenous to the Newberne area of Gilmer County, where he spent his childhood anc~ nts summers a~ter ne retired from West Virginia Univer- sity. Beginning in 1975, he took part in the annual Stonewall Jackson Heri- tage Arts and Crafts Jubilee lair in Jane Lew, only missing one year be- tween 1975 and 2003. In September of 2004, the fair honored him by dedi- cating this year's program to him. For decades, he worked alongside his wife of 66 years, Ethel Foster Kemper '32. At the same booth, where she tracked his orders and helped work the dis- play, Ethel thrilled many with her quilling pictures. When she died in 1998, he then relied on his son Ron and daughter-in-law Lynne to help him with his work. Always a teacher, he also exhibited his personal collec- tion in the annual West Virginia Folk Festival in Glenville where different age groups competed to name the most bird species correctly. Claude completed the Short Nor- mal Course at Glenvilte State Col- lege, received his BS in Agriculture from West Virginia University and his MS in Horticulture also from West Virginia University. He worked eight years with the US Department of.Ag- riculture and spent 25 years with the WVU Cooperative Extension Service. Still it was his appreciation for birds, instead of his schooling, that formed the basis for his bird-carving hobby. This hobby, which he acquired after his retirement, enriched his life and the lives of countless others who en- joyed his work. Claude departed this life on Janu- ary 7, 2004, at Hope Hospice House in Cape Coral, Florida, but to so many who have enjoyed his talented carv- ings, his spirit will live on in their collections and through the continued efforts of his loving son and daughter- in-law as they work to keep his craft alive A complete collection of his bird carvings, which he donated to 91enville State College in 2000, is on permanent display in the Claude and Ethel Kemper Room, located in the College's Robert F. Kidd Library. His memory will als9 live on through the generous scholarship that he and Ethel established at their Alma Mater in 1998 Dr. Miller and Claude Kemper are two of the five individuals who will be honored that day. Judith Elkin Shoemaker Johnson, '71 of Irmo, South Carolina will receive the Alumna of the Year Award, Larry G. Gainer, '66 of St Marys the Alumni Achievement Award and Denver E. Drake,' 76 of Gassaway the Outstand- ing Educator Award. The Class of '79 will be recog- nized that day as well.
