We are remembering Curator Emeritus C. F. Alan Cass, a decades-long member of the campus community who made extraordinary contributions and was known for his dedication, involvement, dynamic personality and humility. Cass died on April 18 at the age of 77.
He joined the CU staff in 1959 as a sound and lighting technician and stagehand at Macky Auditorium before working his way up as director. He also served as assistant director of the CU Boulder University Memorial Center and was the curator of the Glenn Miller Archive, preserving history of the world-famous big band icon and bandleader. Cass became a beloved announcer for Colorado Buffaloes Football and basketball games for nearly 30 years. He also announced women’s basketball games and track meets, as well as Broncos home games.
Share your Buff love and support in memory of C.F. Alan Cass. 🖤💛
