Albert N. Whiting, Former MSU Dean, NCCU President, Dies at Age 102

Albert N. Whiting, a former dean at present-day Morgan State University and former president and chancellor of North Carolina Central University, died on June 4 at Howard County General Hospital in Columbia, Maryland, of pneumonia. He was 102.

Credited with being builder of NCCU, Whiting, who also made a lasting impact on thousands of students, played a critical role in shaping NCCU into the school it has become.

After retiring, Whiting, who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Amherst College in 1938 and a master’s degree in sociology from Fisk University in 1941, relocated to Columbia.

“Albert Whiting made a lasting impact on thousands of students and played a critical role in shaping NCCU into the school it is today,” North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper tweeted. “North Carolina’s education system is better because of Dr. Whiting’s work, and our prayers are with his loved ones.”

A memorial service is being planned.
