In Memoriam

Sandye Jean McIntyre II (1923-2006)

Sandye J. McIntyre II, a longtime professor and director of the Fulbright Scholarship program at Morgan State University in Baltimore, died earlier this month as a result of multiple organ failure at a hospital in Baltimore. He was 83 years old.

Professor McIntyre was born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, but spent most of his time growing up in Cleveland. He joined the Army in World War II working in the intelligence division in France. He was awarded the Bronze Star.

After returning from Europe, McIntyre earned a bachelor’s degree at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte and a master’s degree and a doctorate from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. McIntyre spoke French, Italian, Spanish, German, and Portuguese.

In 1948 he joined the faculty at Morgan State where he would remain until his retirement in 1988. There, he guided scores of students through the process of winning Fulbright scholarships, which he himself had used to study at the Sorbonne.
