C. Huntley Hilliard


C. Huntley Hilliard, 66, chairman of the industrial arts department at the Gilman School, died of cancer Sunday at his home on the school's Roland Avenue campus.

Funeral services will be at 10 a.m. tomorrow at St. John's Episcopal Church, South Road and Kelly Avenue in Mount Washington.

Mr. Hilliard had headed the industrial arts department since 1958 and was instrumental in its expansion from the elementary grades to all 12 grades in the late 1960s. In 1971, the program moved into a new shop in a newly built wing of the main building at Gilman.

In 1985 and 1986, Mr. Hilliard was named to the Edward T. Russell Chair, an honorary endowed teaching post at Gilman, and last June, the student yearbook was dedicated to him and a colleague in the department, Frederick W. Brune Jr.

Survivors include a son, Michael H. Hilliard of Rodgers Forge, who is a lieutenant in the Baltimore Police Department; a daughter, Deidre A. Minton of El Paso, Texas; a sister, Elizabeth H. Brunsman of Asheville, N.C.; a brother, Robert S. Hilliard of Massapequa Park, N.Y.; and three grandchildren.
