When the USAO Foundation was formed 36 years ago, one of its founding trustees was local banker Curtis Brooks, who went on to serve 50-plus years in banking and supported the University of Science and Arts as an outspoken advocate. At the time of his death at 92 this week, he was chairman emeritus of the First National Bank.
When he died on Monday, USAO lost a great friend, said USAO President John Feaver.
