ATHENS, Ohio (AP) - Guido Stempel III, an Ohio University professor who was instrumental in shaping the curriculum of the journalism school and the careers of hundreds of students, has died of cancer at age 87.

The university in Athens says Stempel, a distinguished emeritus professor of journalism in the Scripps College of Communication, died Tuesday at a hospital in Columbus.

Stempel joined the Ohio University faculty in 1965 and served as director of the School of Journalism for eight years. He also served as director of the graduate program and the journalism honors program. He was named a distinguished professor in 1982.

Along with editing and contributing to many publications and journals, he was editor of Journalism Quarterly for 17 years.

He is survived by his wife, Anne, two sons and a daughter.
