Flags lowered for Professor Emeritus Rutenberg

[David Rutenberg]
David Rutenberg

Flags on campus are lowered in memory of David Rutenberg, an emeritus professor in Queen’s School of Business (QSB).

Dr. Rutenberg came to Queen’s in 1977 after spending 16 years at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh. Due in large part to Dr. Rutenberg’s efforts, Queen’s School of Business became increasingly international from the late 1970s to the mid-1990s. When he first joined Queen’s, Dr. Rutenberg created courses in international business. As an educator who believed in the value of students learning and studying abroad, Dr. Rutenberg worked to increase the number of exchange agreements with business schools in other countries. He retired from Queen’s in 2001.

The family will receive friends at Robert J. Reid & Sons (309 Johnson St.) on Sunday, Dec. 21 from 7-9 pm. Visitation will continue at Chalmers United Church (212 Barrie St.) from noon until the time of the service at 1 pm on Monday, Dec. 22. As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations to the Community Foundation for Kingston and Area would be appreciated.
