The Hunter College Campus Schools recently informed us of the passing of Dr. Stanley Seidman, former HCES Principal, on Wednesday, April 21, 2021. They have shared the following obituary with us:
We mourn the passing of our beloved and respected former Hunter College Elementary School Principal, Dr. Stanley Seidman. Dr. Seidman was a formidable advocate for education throughout his career, and HCES was the grateful beneficiary of his talents, dedication, and innovation during the formative 1970s-early 80s. Principal Seidman was also the educational force behind Hunter’s legacy chess program, which still inspires children today. We send our condolences to the Seidman family and cherish the memory of this educational visionary whose work still touches Hunter today. In honor of his memory, his family has requested that donations be made to a fund established to support Chess and the Arts at HCES.
