Tim Nugent, The ‘Father of Accessibility’ at U of I, Dies at 92

Nugent died Wednesday morning.  For years, he advocated for wheelchair-accessible buses, curb cuts, and other amenities that those with disabilities have now used for many years.  His time with the U of I goes back to the late 1940's, when he helped wounded veterans coming back from World War II.
