Alex Cameron, a long-time professor and administrator in EWU’s Department of Accounting, died on Dec. 1. He was 76.

After graduating from EWU with an MBA in 1970, Cameron joined the Bunker Hill Mining Company in North Idaho, where he eventually served as director of corporate planning.  After seven years at Bunker Hill he resigned to pursue his true passion of teaching, obtaining his doctorate from the University of Utah in 1981. Soon after, Cameron returned to Eastern to join the accounting faculty. During his tenure at the university he rose to the rank of professor, while also serving terms as interim dean and the department’s business manager. He retired in 2009.

A celebration of life will be held in the spring of 2020 at Surprise Funeral Home in Surprise, Arizona where Cameron resided in retirement. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to Hospice of the Valley (1510 E. Flower St., Phoenix, AZ, 85014) or a charity of choice.
