My sincere condolences to the extended McAdams clan, his students, and, like me, admirers of his incredible work. A gentleman, and a truly exemplary man of conviction, and integrity. Much respect, from Australia.

I am saddened to hear of Professor MC Adams’ passing. Be assured of my prayers for him and his family. I was never his student, having graduated from Marquette in 1964, before he came. But I became a steadfast admirer of his principled stance after Marquette suspended his tenure. There is no doubt that he was a standard bearer for truth and the right to debate and be heard. May God rest his soul and embrace this courageous man who used the gifts God so generously gave him for the benefit of others.

I taught history at Marquette University for 25 years, and during that time I never encountered a colleague that I thought more highly of than John McAdams. It was a privilege to substitute for him occasionally as a guest lecturer in his John F. Kennedy assassination course. I quickly found that his students shared my respect for his scholarship, insight and wry humor. I will miss his good counsel.
Frank & Scherri McGinn left a message on April 19, 2021:
Dr. McAdams was my advisor during my undergraduate days in the early 80's at Marquette, a terrific professor whose classes I enjoyed greatly, a defender of liberty, and a friend. I am proud to have known John and am delighted to have been back in touch with him in recent years. My wife Scherri and I send sincere condolences to his wife, children, grandchildren, and loved ones. As you grieve the loss of John, know that he touched many lives, in more ways than you can imagine. He was a great man who will be sorely missed. Wishing you comfort and peace.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I was a student of John's in the early 1980's. His Poli Sci course was my favorite course at Marquette even though I majored in business. I just learned of his death as I have a relative who passed away and also at Krause. I was very supportive and proud of John's challenge to the university and win at the Wisconsin State Supreme Court. The family should know he was an inspiration to his students and to principled people everywhere as he taught and then fought for constitutional principle espoused in the Federalist Papers. "Publius" would be proud. Glenn Kleczka & Family Scottsdale and Chicago
