Bob Keller has died this evening. Bob is known by all who are over 30 and have worked in environmental or community projects in Bellingham and Whatcom County. He came to Western Washington University in the fall of 1967 and helped start Fairhaven College - and taught history as his main discipline for decades. He also taught mountain climbing and several social subjects. He was a quiet person and hardly a master at conversation. But he was always true to himself and indeed led a life pursuing self knowledge. He was always questioning of any sure statements by others. And he also worked very hard to make our community better - such as his participation and even leadership in forming the Whatcom Land Trust.
I met him in 1968 and we taught climbing together and he provided the final history class for my major at Western. Over the years we touched on different local issues. But this is just a stub. He deserves our recognition for all he gave us and tried to give us. Perhaps a few others might tell our readers more about Bob. Perhaps?
