Retired USC Religion Professor Gerry Larue passed away this week.

Gerald Larue established the Archaeological Research Collection in the School of Religion in the mid-1960s. He led teams of students to Israel and what is now called the West Bank to excavate sites such as Hebron and Khirbet Mazra’a, which is located east of Tel Dor on the coast.

Following his retirement from the Religion faculty, he joined the faculty of Gerontology and had an equally long second career there.
