In Memory of Scripps College Professor Emeritus Dalton Krauss

Scripps Colleges Professor Emeritus of French Dalton Krauss passed away on June 13, 2021. Scripps held a memorial service on April 15, 2022, with many members of The Claremont Colleges community in attendance.

Falling in love with French literature after reading Madame Bovary during his undergraduate studies at Oberlin College, Dalton went on to obtain his MPhil and PhD from Yale University prior to his arrival at Scripps in 1974. Here, he held his role for a remarkable 45 years until his retirement in spring 2019. 

Dalton was generous with his time, insights, and even his philanthropy, with the professor leaving part of his estate to the College. An articulate writer and lecturer, he was considered warm, funny, and kind by his students and a source of wisdom by his fellow faculty members. 

“Dalton was a very measured, tempered, and thoughtful person. Our faculty really trusted him,” says Margaret McKenzie, distinguished professor in modern foreign languages and Professor of French Nathalie Rachlin, who collaborated with Dalton on scholarly colloquia. “If I were to use one word to describe Dalton, it would be ‘brilliant’—but without being intimidating or making you feel judged. He wore his brilliance well.”
