In Memoriam of Aldo Casanova

The Scripps Voice would like to extend its condolences to all those affected by the passing of Professor Emeritus Aldo Casanova. An excerpt from President Lori Bettison-Varga’s email has been printed below in his memory.

“[He] was a self-taught, world-renowned sculptor who enjoyed a long and decorated career in the arts… A native Californian, Aldo was born to Italian immigrant parents in San Francisco in 1929. He received his Bachelor and Master degrees at San Francisco State University and earned his Ph.D. from Ohio State University…Aldo was a beloved member of the Claremont community and credited the beauty of his surroundings with inspiring a great deal of his work…He is survived by his longtime partner, Jill Fulton.”

Information about a memorial service will be provided at a later date.
