    Jim Lindsay was a colleague at the University of Dubuque who supported faculty endeavors both financially and emotionally. He spoke out against injustices perpetrated by administration both at faculty meetings and privately. After retiring, he was a faithful attender at the monthly meetings of retired faculty. He held high standards for his students.

      Dr. Lindsay was one of the finest men I have ever known. As a professor he taught students to learn and to think. Bar none the finest educator I have ever encountered. He mixed considerable intellect with compassion and thoughtfulness. The world is an emptier place without him. Thank you Dr. Lindsay for everything you have done for me.

  5. Lois Prochaska says:

    I had the privilege of working with Dr. Lindsay when he volunteered in my classroom at Prescott School. He was an excellent role model for the children. He genuinely cared for the students and worked to help them achieve success. I will be forever grateful for his assistance and dedication. My sincere condolences to Sue and the family.
