Bron Barnett Ingoldsby (11 Jan 1950-18 Oct 2005)


Editor's Note

Dr. Bron Ingoldsby was a very active supporter of the Journal of Comparative Family Studies. I met him in annual meetings of the National Council of Family Relations. He always expressed his keen interest in the future of this journal and made very useful suggestions to continue the successful role of this unique publication exclusively devoted to cross-cultural family studies. He continued to review articles even when he was seriously ill. He is the second Associate Editor who passed away stricken by cancer. The other was Dr. John Blacking, Professor and Vice-Chancellor of Queen's University, Belfast, Ireland. He was an Associate Editor since 1971. He edited a special issue, "Aspects of Family Life in Ireland" in summer 1979. This most valuable collection of articles is even used for reference by various scholars. He continued his contribution even when he was critically ill and passed away on Jan 24, 1990. As Editor, I will always remain grateful for the outstanding contributions of these scholars.

Bron, the son of Norman and Daphine Ingoldby, grew up in Lindsay, California with his twin brother Kirk and siblings Pamela and Todd. He graduated from Lindsay High School and later attended Brigham Young University (B.A. in history with Spanish and psychology minors), Utah State University (M.S. in Family and Human Development), and the University of Georgia (Ph.D. in Child and Family Development).

He served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Colombia Venezuela mission, developing a great love for the people and an appreciation for cultural diversity. Bron married the love of his life Valerie Percevault in 1974 in the Provo, Utah LDS temple and welcomed twin daughters to their family in 1980. The family lived in Rootstown, Ohio; Rexburg and Sugar City, Idaho; and Orem, Utah.

An advocate for appreciation of cultural diversity, Bron traveled extensively, helping to bring understanding and tolerance to those around him. He loved teaching in the Family Science departments at Kent State University (Assistant Professor, Director of the Human Development Center, Chairman of the school course and curriculum committee, and Graduate Studies Coordinator), Ricks College (Professor, Department Chair, Chair of Home Economics, and member of the Honors faculty and International Studies steering committee), and BYU (Associate Professor, Curriculum and Graduate Committees). He co-authored three text books on family theories and family in cross-cultural context as well as over 40 journal articles, with several other projects in the works.
