Kelly, Donald, 1930-



Dr. Donald Kelly (born 1930) taught in Slippery Rock University's History Department, specializing in Native American studies. Kelly had a true Slippery Rock education: he attended Slippery Rock High School on the campus grounds and was taught by Slippery Rock College graduates.

After serving in the Korean War, Kelly completed his undergraduate studies in History, returning later to head the Department of History. He was instrumental in starting both the History master’s degree program and the Slippery Rock University Archives. During his time at SRU Kelly wrote two books on local history and managed the Old Stone House. He was the first ex-faculty member on the Board of Trustees.
