In Memoriam

We are saddened to note the recent passing of emeriti who played essential roles in the development, growth, and evolution of their academic departments. Each engaged in activities in keeping with descriptions noted in "A Virtual Eleventh Campus". All remained active for a decade or more beyond their retirements with an impact that highlights the most positive attributes of the UC Davis campus.
