If you missed the Wasserman Memorial Symposium in September, or would like to review what went on there, the website linked below provides a video for each speaker, both the scientific talks by Bruce Lipshutz, Brian Stoltz, John Wood, and Steven Wasserman, and the short talks about Harry by many others, including Elga, who passed away last week, and their children Dan, Diana, and Steven. There are links to other materials about this important figure in Yale’s chemical history, whom we would all be better for emulating. http://chem.yale.edu/HHW/
The Department of Chemistry and the Yale community are saddened by the loss of Professor Donald M. Crothers, Sterling Professor of Chemistry Emeritus, who passed on March 16 after a struggle with cancer. Known for his formidable intellect, impeccable judgment, inspirational teaching and mentorship, and selfless dedication to Yale and the broader community, Crothers was a member of the faculty since 1964 and served as Chair of the Department of Chemistry for four three year terms.
