H. Carroll Cassill, Founder of Printmaking Major, Dies

Professor Emeritus H. Carroll Cassill, who established printmaking as a separate major at The Cleveland Institute of Art, died earlier this month at 79.

For Immediate Release: January 31, 2008

Professor Emeritus H. Carroll Cassill, who established printmaking as a separate major at The Cleveland Institute of Art, died earlier this month at 79.

Carroll joined the faculty in 1957 to redefine CIA’s Printmaking program. For many years, printmaking had been primarily a support area for the Illustration and Graphic Design Departments, whose students could elect to work in woodcutting, linoleum-cut and intaglio techniques. Upon his arrival, Carroll physically rebuilt and thoroughly redefined the program. He retired in 1991 and was named Professor Emeritus.

Survivors include his wife of 56 years, Jean Kubota Cassill; daughter, Sarah Wallace, her husband Andrew and their children Nina and Erik; son, Aaron Cassill, his wife, Mary and their children, Julia and Carolyn; and countless former students and colleagues who remember Carroll with great fondness and respect.

The William Busta Gallery, 2731 Prospect Avenue, Cleveland, will feature a memorial exhibition of Carroll’s work in May. Those who wish to make a donation in Carroll’s memory may send contributions for the H.C. Cassill Scholarship in Printmaking to The Cleveland Institute of Art, 11141 East Boulevard, Cleveland, Ohio, 44106.
