A painter who taught at the U for more than 30 years has died.

V. Douglas Snow, 82, died Tuesday night in a highway one-car rollover in Sevier County. It was raining as Snow drove a Nissan Altima west on State Route 24. At about 1:30 p.m., his car drifted left and then rolled off the highway when he overcorrected, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

Snow died at the scene from fatal injuries, even though he was wearing a seat belt and the car’s air bags deployed.

Besides teaching art at the U, where he studied, Snow was chairman of the art department from 1966 to 1971. Snow also contributed paintings to the College of Social Work Building, Pioneer Theatre, the Union and the Marriott Library.
