Cal   Melick


Cal Melick was a faculty member and public services librarian at Washburn University. For more than 30 years he taught, counseled and inspired hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students, including his spouse, in the values of higher education and the adventure of ideas across the sciences, arts and humanities. Melick was reference librarian for information literacy, genealogy, education, music, art and theater, and published library guides for conducting research on these subjects.
Melick had a life-long passion for education and loved learning about other cultures. He was very supportive of international students at Washburn, always willing provide assistance to them and serve as a resource whenever he could help. His gift to support international programs at Washburn University combines his affinity for education and international programs.
