George W. Fellendorf, Ed.D., of Keene, N.H., died on Thursday, September 12, of acute leukemia. Many people in the Washington, DC area, as well as internationally, knew him as the executive director of the Alexander Graham Bell Association from 1962 to 1978. During that time, he also served as the editor of the association’s publication The Volta Review.

Prior to that time, Dr. Fellendorf, who was born in 1925 in Glen Cove, NY, had been president of an engineering company in Easton, Pa., where their daughter Linda received speech and auditory training from Helen Beebe, one of the pioneers of the auditory verbal approach.

Dr. Fellendorf and his wife Hazel were the parents of two other daughters, six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.
