LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Former University of Nevada, Las Vegas professor, president and author Leonard "Pat" Goodall has died at age 75.
The university announced Tuesday that Goodall died Monday at home in Las Vegas after battling brain cancer.
Goodall was the university's fourth president, serving from 1979-1984. He remained a professor of management and public administration until his retirement in 2000.

He is survived by his wife, Karen Crane, daughter Karla Powers, son Gregory Goodall, and grandchildren.
Plans for a memorial service are incomplete.
