Professor Richard Frost

Professor Richard H. Frost Passes

Richard H. Frost, professor of American history and Native American studies emeritus, passed away peacefully Tuesday, November 23, 2021. He was a resident of Hamilton, N.Y. and Santa Fe, N.M.

Professor Frost was born in 1930 in Brooklyn, N.Y. He received a BA from Swarthmore College in 1951, and an MA and PhD from the University of California at Berkeley in 1954 and 1960, respectively. Before coming to Colgate, he served as a teaching assistant in history and English, as an associate in history, and as the John Randolph Haynes and Dora Haynes Foundation research fellow in history at the University of California. In 1960 he began teaching at United College in Canada, now the University of Winnipeg. He joined the Colgate faculty in 1966 as an associate professor teaching American history and later Native American history. He retired in 1996.

Professor Frost built upon Colgate’s January term classes in the American Indian Southwest, establishing in 1991 among the Pueblos of New Mexico, a Colgate study group, which has continued for 30 years through the commitment of other Native American studies (NAST) faculty. The Santa Fe study group has provided our students with a rare and important opportunity to learn about — and from — Pueblo peoples past and present and to serve their communities through service learning projects much appreciated by the Pueblos themselves. The NAST Santa Fe study group owes its legacy to Professor Frost’s initiative and planning.

Frost was the author of numerous articles as well as The Mooney Case (Stanford University Press, 1968) and The Railroad and the Pueblo Indians: The Impact of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe on the Pueblos of the Rio Grande, 1880–1930 (University of Utah Press, 2016). He put his historical knowledge to work by serving as an expert witness on behalf of the Pueblo Indians in a number of natural resource lawsuits, for which he wrote extensive documentary depositions. His last scholarly presentation on the Colgate campus was in 2017, presenting his research on the Pueblos.

Professor Frost served on the Research Council and was a member of the American Historical Association and the Organization of American Historians. He was long a singer in the Hamilton, N.Y. choral group Tapestry and the author, in 2009, of I Never Saw a Silver Swan: Poetic Introductions to Madrigals of the Renaissance, 1530–1630

He is survived by his wife, Barbara; daughters Catherine Frost of Santa Fe, N.M., and Heather Frost (Jeff Mason) of Erie, Colo.; his sister, Elizabeth Buck (Alfred) of Lakewood, Wash.; and nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, and -nephews.

Interment was held in St. Thomas’ Memorial Garden on December 6, 2021, and a memorial service will be held at a later date at St. Thomas Church in Hamilton.

Contributions in his memory may be made to:

  • The Hamilton Food Cupboard (; P.O. Box 411, Hamilton, N.Y. 13346);
  • The Food Depot in Santa Fe (; 1222 A Siler Road, Santa Fe, N.M. 87507), or; 
  • The Music Program at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Hamilton (12 ½ Madison Street, Hamilton, N.Y. 13346)
