This Day in Daily History

Regents approve lower tuition hike

Sept. 19, 1980 – Over 200 faculty members and fellow students attended Friday’s memorial service for slain University graduate Rebecca Greer Huff.

Huff, a recent 30-year-old graduate who had started working on a Master’s in Business Administration at the Business School, was tragically murdered a week ago. She was the third woman in the Ann Arbor area to be killed in the last five months.

The Ann Arbor Police Department reported yesterday that no suspects have been named in her murder investigation. At the afternoon service held at Hale Auditorium in the Business School, friends reminisced about happier times with Huff.

A classmate said her favorite memory of Huff was from a statistics class when a professor asked what a T-square was. When no one in the class responded, he called on Greer. She responded, “Cosmic,” which made the class and the professor laugh.
