John Kirk Clemens, 77;

Led Leadership Institute

John K. Clemens

ONEONTA – John Kirk Clemens, Hartwick College professor emeritus of business administration, passed away peacefully on Monday, Jan. 8, from complications due to Alzheimer’s’ disease.

These cases were used at Hartwick, at other universities and in corporate training programs nationwide. He wrote in refereed journals, as well as articles for the national business press. He co-authored four books.
