TEANECK, N.J. - J. Michael Adams, 64, president of Fairleigh Dickinson University for more than a decade before announcing his retirement last month, died Thursday.
Mr. Adams went on medical leave in the fall after being stricken with a blood disorder, and the university said he underwent a bone marrow transplant in February that was unsuccessful. He was later diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. A university spokesman said he died at the Morristown Medical Center.
Mr. Adams took over as the private university's sixth president in 1999.
