[The following tribute was written by Art Simington for the Alumni Magazine.
Unfortunately, Art was unable to provide an obituary in English as evidence of Ken's death,
so the magazine did not publish the obituary

Eishoku "Ken" Kuroda died of a heart attack at his home in Chiba, Japan,
on July 18. Ken came to Dartmouth from Tokyo and majored in engineering
science. At Dartmouth Ken was member of the Cosmopolitan Club and Alpha
Theta Fraternity. His fraternity brothers remember him as handsome,
always cheerful, and so very bright. With impeccable manners and gentle
disposition he cut a dashing and urbane figure, and he supplied a
wonderful look into a different culture to a then-somewhat provincial
Hanover community. After Dartmouth Ken got a masters degree from MIT
and went on to serve in a variety of management and marketing positions
in companies that included Mobil Oil, Ernst and Ernst, RCA, American
Express, NCR, and Litton. Ken was an excellent nature photographer and
an active member of the Audubon Society until his death. He is survived
by his mother, Mitsue in Chiba, and sisters Eiko in Maui, Keiko in San
Francisco, and Kazuko is Los Angeles.
