Brother Clarence Schenk 1932-2015
Brother Clarence Schenk, FSC, retired faculty member of the Communication Department and a beloved member of the Saint Mary’s community, died of natural causes on Friday, Aug. 21. He was 83 years old. Brother Clarence is fondly remembered as the College’s unofficial film historian. He owned 300-400 films, which he shared with students and community members in the small movie theater he built in the Brothers’ residence.
