Page Hazlegrove, the glass studio instructor at the Materials Processing Center and an accomplished artist, died suddenly in her sleep on September 15. She was 41.

Ms. Hazlegrove, a Dedham resident, taught a course in designing and constructing with glass in the "hot shop" for nine years, sharing her knowledge with more than 500 MIT students. She also brought exposure for MIT within the art community through her participation in national arts events. It was through her efforts that portions of the Glass Arts Society meeting were held at MIT in 1996.

Ms. Hazlegrove was a graduate of Connecticut College and the Glass Department of the Rhode Island School of Design. She exhibited her work in museums and galleries, most notably at the Society of Arts and Crafts on Newbury Street. The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Wheaton American Glass Museum in Milleville, NJ, own some of her work.

Ms. Hazlegrove leaves her husband, Peter Kenyon; two children, Ryland and Anna; her parents, Wilbur and Lucy Hazlegrove of Roanoke, VA; a brother, Bill; and two sisters, Cary Bullington and Sarah Sieveking.

A condolence book will be available in Rm 12-011. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Stanley O. Travis Fund in North Grafton, MA, which provides medical and surgical care for small animals and wildlife, and the Noanet Woodland Trustees of Reservations in Beverly, MA.
