David Watson Noble Sr., 92, beloved husband, father, grandfather, greatgrandfather, uncle, teacher, and friend died March 11, 2018.
Noble received his bachelor’s degree from Princeton University in 1948, and his doctorate from the University of Wisconsin in 1952. That same year he began his long career in the history department at the University of Minnesota.
He had lived in St. Anthony Park for decades and was much loved for his popular lectures on historical figures, for which he dressed the part of each subject.
A memorial was held March 17 at St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral in Minneapolis. Memorial donations are suggested to Planned Parenthood, Second Harvest Heartland or the David Noble Graduate Research Fellowship at the University of Minnesota.
