Memorial service for Dr. Bill Binnie
Since retiring in 2006 to his native Scotland, Dr. William H. “Bill” Binnie may have lived thousands of miles from the college, but his presence was never far. His 27 years at Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry made a lasting impact on the dental school.
At 5 p.m. on Oct. 9, students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are invited to a memorial service honoring Binnie, who passed away Aug. 17. The Regents Professor emeritus, member of the college’s Hall of Fame and health science center administrator served as professor and chair of oral pathology and oversaw the transition to the Department of Diagnostic Sciences, merging oral pathology, oral and maxillofacial radiology and the Oral Diagnosis Clinic.
Most recently, Binnie spent his time in retirement running a bed and breakfast in St. Andrews, Scotland, with his wife, Cheryl, and teaching part time at the Edinburgh Postgraduate Dental Institute and his alma mater, the University of Glasgow Dental School.
