Jean Hagstrum, John C. Shaffer Professor Emeritus of English, died Nov. 5 [1995] in Tucson, Ariz. He was 84.

Hagstrum, who taught at Northwestern from 1941 to 1981, was a distinguished scholar of 18th century and Romantic literature.

During his 40 years at the University, he was instrumental in founding the residential college system; served as chair of the English department; led the task force that produced the "Community of Scholars" report; and directed one of the first Alumni Colleges on the subject of "Sex and Sensibility."

He was the author of several books including "Esteem Enlivened by Desire: The Couple from Homer to Shakespeare," which earned him the Aldo Scaglione Prize for distinguished achievement by the Modern Language Association. He was also the guest of honor at the 1995 convention of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies.

The English department has named its reception room/library in University Hall the "Hagstrum Room" in his honor.

He is survived by two daughters, Katherine Hagstrum and Phyllis Meshulam. Condolences may be sent to Katherine Hagstrum at P.O. Box 1587, Bisbee, Ariz., 85603. A memorial service is being planned for spring when members of the family can attend.
