Albion Mourns the Passing of Frank Bonta, ’49, Dean of Admissions, Emeritus

Frank Bonta, '49, in 1982 during his time as Albion College's dean of admissions.

"It's hard to put into words what Albion College meant to Frank," said Chuck Frayer, '77, about his father-in-law, who died May 20 after a long illness at the age of 92. "Although Frank had a long, distinguished career at Albion, the College was always more than a place to work. The relationships he formed at Albion continued beyond his retirement and remained at the center of his life."
