We are deeply saddened to announce that Mary Ann Tétreault, the emeritus Una Chapman Cox Distinguished Professor of International Affairs at Trinity University, passed away on November 11 in Newport, Vt. She was 73.

Tétreault came to Trinity in 2000.  Many students gave testimonials of how Tétreault helped them gain self-confidence to reach their fullest potential and spoke of “her patience, energy, enthusiasm, and sage advice.” A social fraternity selected her as “Professor of the Year” in 2009, and the University bestowed an advising award on her the same year.  She retired from Trinity in 2012.
 
Tétreault found a curiosity about the oil industry and America’s love-hate relationship with the Middle East because of oil.  She was a Fulbright Fellow at Kuwait University in 1990, and Comenius University in Slovakia in 1996. She taught at Kitakyushu University, Old Dominion University, and Iowa State University before arriving at Trinity. She also was a visiting professor at the American University of Kuwait and a fellow at the Georgetown School of Foreign Service in Qatar.  Tétreault earned a bachelor’s degree in chemist and history from Sarah Lawrence and a doctorate degree in political science from Rice University.
 
In retirement, she returned to her home in Vermont. She continued to travel to Kuwait and was honored as the Distinguished Senior Scholar in Political Economy by the International Studies Association.

She is survived by her husband, Richard Tétreault, and two sons, Charles and Paul. In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory may be made to the American Cancer Society.
