Cornell trustee emeritus Bernard W. "Bernie" Potter died May 25 at age 86, leaving a legacy of service to Cornell and New York agriculture and a wide array of mostly Cornell-affiliated friends and relatives.

Born March 28, 1922, in Truxton, N.Y., he earned a B.S. from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in 1943 and remained an avid supporter of Cornell, serving on numerous committees, including the Agriculture and Life Sciences Advisory Council. He was a Cornell trustee for 10 years and was named trustee emeritus in 1991.

As a member of the Board of Trustees Potter served on the Land Grant and Statutory College Affairs Committee from 1981 through 1993, and was vice chair of the committee from 1981 to 1991.
