Gene Pearson Memorial Giving

                                                           Gene Pearson     

Gene Pearson, founding member of the Department of City and Regional Planning, and longtime director, passed away on May 23, 2017. Gene's career at the University of Memphis spanned forty years, during which he helped prepare generations of planners and had an indelible impact on the Memphis region.

Gene's family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Gene's honor to the Department of City and Regional Planning, so that we can continue to support students in his legacy and grow the program that Gene built.
