In memory of Professor William D. Stafford
Former Chairman of Northwood's Hotel, Restaurant & Resort Management Department

Mr. William D. Stafford was the first chairman of the Hotel, Restaurant & Resort Management Department at Northwood Institute. Northwood then became a university in 1993. From 1969 to 1972, Mr. Stafford shared his expertise from his years in the hospitality industry and incorporated it into the curriculum.

Mr. Stafford introduced his students to the idea of a dinner with a theme in which the students
prepared special dishes and dinner festivities for leaders of the hospitality industry.

William Stafford and his contribution to the program deserve to be saluted on this special evening. Our thanks extend to Mr. Stafford for his educational direction for Northwood's program. We also want to thank Mrs. Ethel Stafford who has given us her guidance and support and shared wonderful memories with us over the years.
