The Jerome Liebling Memorial Fund

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

The Jerome Liebling Memorial Fund has been established to honor Jerome Liebling's life and legacy as a pioneering photographer, filmmaker, and teacher.

This endowed fund will provide opportunities for Hampshire College alumni with expertise in the academic and professional areas Professor Liebling mentored and taught to share their professional work and experiences with students, faculty, and the greater Hampshire community. It will support classroom and laboratory experiences and provide Hampshire students with opportunities to supplement their studies through participation in specialized workshops, seminars, and other means of engagement.

The Liebling Memorial Fund will also support ongoing renewal and modernization of the Liebling Center for Film, Photography, and Video. Dedicated in 2009, the building has been certified by the U.S. Green Building Council at the Gold Level for energy efficiency and environmental design. The fund will help keep this state¬-of-the-art facility at the forefront of "green" buildings and Hampshire's film, photography, and video program at the technological and pedagogical leading edge.

The Jerome Liebling Memorial Fund is being established entirely through donations from family, friends, and the generations of students whose careers, creativity, and artistic vision were shaped by their connection to Jerry Liebling in the classrooms, darkrooms, and studios where he taught, lectured, and critiqued.

Contributions celebrating Jerry Liebling's life and legacy may be sent to the attention of: Clay Ballantine, Hampshire College, 893 West Street, Amherst, MA 01002 or made online at If you have any questions or need additional information, please call 413.559.5647 or email
