Henry Mayes awarded for University Staff Excellence

Henry Mayes has won a University Staff Excellence Award.  This award is extremely competitive and staff in technical fields such as Information Technology rarely win.  This was a joint award coordinated between the Botany and Math Departments as Henry works part-time in each department.  We are fortunate to have such a dedicated and respected employee in Henry and he is very deserving of this award!

In Memoriam: Louis Solomon

Emeritus Professor Louis Solomon passed away Wednesday, November 18, at his home. He attended Harvard for his undergraduate education, and after two years of service in the Army, returned for graduate study, receiving his PhD from Harvard in 1958 under Professor Richard Brauer. Following positions at the Rockefeller Institute, Haverford College, and New Mexico State University, two summers at Los Alamos National Laboratory, and a year as a visiting scholar at the Institute for Advanced Study, he joined the Mathematics Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1969 and retired in 2000.
