2002 Hall of Fame inductee - Raymond J. Newbold
One of the 13 original faculty members at Rhode Island Junior College, Raymond J. Newbold, was the first chairman of the college’s mathematics department. In addition to his teaching responsibilities, he coached the college’s first baseball team and continued coaching until 1980.
In 1972, Newbold left the mathematics department to become dean of arts and sciences at the college’s original Providence campus on Promenade Street. He supervised the move from that facility to the new Flanagan Campus in Lincoln in 1976, after which he returned to the mathematics faculty until his retirement in 2000.
