John L. Goodyear, former Artist and Professor Emeritus at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership.
Mr. Goodyear enjoyed art for the entirety of his life. Following a calling to pursue it professionally, he attended the University of Michigan, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Art in design in 1952. He remained at the school for two more years, earning a master’s in design in 1954. Through the process of pursuing an education, Mr. Goodyear found a passion of his own for educating others. This inspired him to seek out an academic career alongside that of being an artist. In 2000, he received accolades from Michener Museum. That same year he was a co-curator of “Dada Country” at the Hunterdon Museum of Art.
For over 60 years, Mr. Goodyear touched the minds of every student with whom he worked. He always said he learned as much from his students as they did from him, which is what motivated him to continue teaching throughout the years. He had myriad experiences in the classroom, as he taught at numerous universities over the course of his career, such as the University of Michigan, the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. He remained at the latter institution from 1997 until he passed away in 2019. He had earned the title of Professor Emeritus and was respected by many. As a testament to his lifetime of success, he is featured in numerous editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Education, and Who’s Who in the East.
