In Memoriam: Ulrich Petersen (1927-2017)

November 20, 2017

It is with great sadness that we note the passing of our friend and colleague, Ulrich Petersen (Harry C Dudley Professor of Economic Geology, Emeritus).  Ulrich joined our faculty in 1963 and continued in that role until his retirement in 1995.  He and his wife Eileen remained active in the department throughout the years and were happily present for our social gatherings such as the start of term celebration as recently as this past August.  He was an excellent scholar and a truly fine man and will be greatly missed.
