Murray Cole ’43 was awarded on honorary degree on Friday from Montclair State University.

At Friday’s commencement ceremony, an honorary doctor of laws degree will be awarded to Murray L. Cole, who was a member of Montclair State’s Board of Trustees for 23 years and led the board for 10 years, from 1983 to 1989 and from 1995 to 1999.

Cole, a Ridgewood resident, was an active participant in numerous university events as well as a contributor of financial assistance, property and supplies such as books, instructional videotapes and solar equipment. He was instrumental in encouraging others to become friends and supporters of the university, and served on the steering council of the university’s first capital campaign.

Cole seems to have played a very important role at MSU for several decades.
