New York Times Honors ‘Anna B’

| December 23, 2011

Anna Barbara Sakurai

Each December The New York Times Magazine puts a spotlight on the lives of special people we’ve lost during the past year, and this year they include a woman who was a fixture at Webster University for more than 50 years.

The George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology believes there is no one more worthy of this tribute than our own Anna Barbara Sakurai, the retired longtime Webster professor who died last June.

The editors at the Times agreed and featured her in the 2011 “The Lives They Lived.” See Anna Barbara’s picture and read her tribute online.

“Anna B’s” tribute is also one of only a handful to appear in the print edition of The New York Times Magazine published Dec. 25.

    A wonderful tribute to a wonderful lady we will always miss.

    There are individuals whose kindness touches us in ways we never at first suspect. There was always a calmness and serenity about Anna Barbara that still resonates with me. She seemed to embody the spirit of teaching and coaching that made me love Webster. If education is at all a spiritual journey, then I am glad Anna Barbara is still traveling with us.
