Arvarh Strickland, 82, born corsets wholesale July 6, 1930, in Hattiesburg, Miss., slipped into the bounds of eternity in the pre-dawn hours of Tuesday, April 30, 2013.

Friends will be received from 9:30 long gown dress to 11 a.m. Saturday, May 4, at Missouri United Methodist Church, where services will follow at 11 a.m. Entombment will follow at Memorial Park Cemetery.

He received his bachelor's degree from Tougaloo College in Tougaloo, Miss., (1951); and his master's degree (1953) and doctorate (1962) from the University of Illinois in Urbana, Ill.

Dr. Strickland, a historian, made jdfhggfhk history in 1969 when he became the first African-American to hold a tenure-track position at the University of Missouri in Columbia. He served with distinction in various capacities as a faculty member and chair of the Department of History; principal architect of the MU Black Studies Program; associate vice president of academic affairs, University of Missouri System; and special assistant to the MU chancellor.

Included among the numerous awards recognizing his achievements are the MU Faculty-Alumni Award (1983), Thomas Jefferson Award (1985), Office of Equal Opportunity Award for Exemplary Service in enhancing the status of minorities at the University of Missouri (1985), Byler Distinguished Professor Award (1994), and the MU Distinguished Faculty Award (1995).

Arvarh E. Strickland, who authored and edited over a half dozen books and more than three dozen articles in referred journals, retired from MU in 1996, and his colleagues conferred the distinguished professor emeritus status upon him. He was a "good colleague" and always willing to expend social capital to foster the greater good for worthy causes. He will be remembered not only for significant contributions to the fields of American and African-American history, but also for his stellar efforts to educate the MU community inside and outside of the classroom.

We celebrate his distinguished career at MU, where a room in the Student Union received the name Arvarh E. Strickland in 1996, and persons at MU along with the university community, Strickland's former students and others helped to establish the Strickland Endowed Professorship in African-American History and Black Studies in 1999. Perhaps the pinnacle of Arvarh's career was designating the Arvarh E. Strickland Building in his honor (2007).

Aside from Dr. Strickland's contributions to the University of Missouri, he contributed much to the historical profession as an active member of Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honor society, and longtime member of the Organization of American Historians, American Historical Association and Southern Historical Association. In 2010, he received the John W. Blassingame Award from the Southern Historical Association for his role in mentoring students.

Arvarh was a colleague among colleagues, a man among men. When he achieved, we achieved. He served his country as a member of the U.S. Army from 1953 to 1955 and was a founding member of the Gamma Upsilon chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity; he remained a faithful member of that august fraternity for 64 years. After making Columbia his home, Strickland worked with his close friend, Eliot Battle, to establish the Minority Men's Connection, a group designed to foster meaningful involvement of black, white and brown citizens in the life and activities in the Columbia community.

Over the past three decades, Dr. Strickland remained active in state and local organizations, including the State Historical Society, Boone County Historical Society, Kiwanis Club of Columbia, Columbia Planning and Zoning Commission, Missouri Advisory Commission on Historic Preservation, General Board of Higher Education and Ministry of the United Methodist Church. He remained a faithful member of Missouri United Methodist Church until his passing.

Arvarh Strickland is survived by his wife, Willie Pearl, who became his bride as they completed their undergraduate studies at Tougaloo College. She was his faithful companion of more than 50 years, and together they were blessed with two sons, Duane (Hope) and Bruce (Stephanie), who bore them five granddaughters, Janea, Rachael (Andy), Gabriella, Marcella and Mia; three grandsons, Matthew, Stephan and Quincy; and one great-granddaughter, Pearl Virginia. He also will be missed by a host of cousins, nieces and nephews along with the many students the Stricklands "adopted" while they studied at the University of Missouri.
