Graham deserves recognition for helping Carleton be a pioneer in the field of computing, but he humbly gave the credit to enthusiastic and imaginative students and alumni. He was an open, upbeat, and encouraging mentor to many people, and had a wide network of friends extending from Physical Education and the Chapel to the Carleton Shop. He was also a Carleton parent and grandparent.
Graham’s wide ranging interests and friendships extended into the community. He was a city councilor and an interim mayor of Northfield. His full obituary can be read on the Northfield News website.
