Regents Professor Vaughn Bryant
October 5, 1940 — January 30, 2021

Dr Vaughn BryantIt is with the heaviest of hearts that we share this sad news. Our friend, our mentor, our dearest colleague, Dr. Vaughn Bryant, passed away peacefully on the morning of January 30, 2021 after battling one of the most aggressive forms of cancer for the past several years. He will be remembered with the greatest fondness for his kindness of spirit and his generosity of heart.

He created the Anthropology department, made so many careers and futures here possible, and touched the lives of every person he came in contact with during his 50 years in the Department of Anthropology. He was the grandfather of our department. We will miss him dearly. A memorial scholarship will soon be established in his name.

Because of the pandemic, a service has not yet been planned, but we will share more details as soon as we can.

Gifts in memory of Dr. Vaughn M. Bryant should be sent to Texas A&M Foundation, 401 George Bush Drive, College Station, Texas 77840.
