MSU Home :: Barnes, Lewis & Ruth
They came to MSU in 1963 as faculty in the English department. He was a recognized authority in linguistics and a pioneer in educational television, and insisted on teaching a full load of classes, on and off campus, for graduates and undergraduates. For years, he would not accept pay for teaching off campus and asked that the money be deposited in a scholarship fund for needy students who had potential. Ruth received the Distinguished Faculty Award in 1980, he in 1981. One student said: “They were task masters, not easy to please, but their excellence and expectations helped me hone skills that went far beyond the classroom.”
