The Ohio State University hosted a public celebration of John Glenn’s life on Dec. 17, at the university’s Mershon Auditorium. The former NASA astronaut and U.S. Senator passed away Dec. 8 at the age of 95. Glenn, a decorated U.S. marine, was the first American to orbit Earth and, much later in life, became the oldest person to travel to space. He represented Ohio in the U.S. Senate from 1974-1997.
Glenn was a longtime supporter of Ohio State and its students. Upon his retirement from the U.S. Senate, he donated his personal and senate papers and other artifacts to the university. That donation grew into the John Glenn College of Public Affairs. Glenn took an active interest in the Glenn College. He was a University Honors Distinguished Fellow, chaired the college’s board of directors, and was an adjunct professor in both the Department of Political Science and the School of Public Policy and Management.
