Benjamin Ide Wheeler, UC President (1899-1919) and Professor of Philology
1854-1927

"Rarely has it happened that the president of an American university has been so widely esteemed and so generally consulted as was he."
Edward Arthur Steinhaus,
Professor of Insect Pathology, UC Berkeley
Professor of Pathobiology and Founding Dean of Biological Sciences, UC Irvine
1914-1969

"The culmination of his lifelong aspiration to centralize research on disease in all forms of life, the Center for Pathobiology will grow as a memorial to Edward A. Steinhaus."
Willard Frank Libby, Professor of Chemistry, UC Los Angeles
Nobel Laureate
1908-1980

"The central theme dominating Professor Libby's life and career was the application of science to solving problems of profound social
significance."
Harold C. Urey, University Professor of Chemistry, UC San Diego
Nobel Laureate
1893-1981

"His work from the beginning was marked by a sure sense of what problems were important, by technical ingenuity, and by enormous energy and persistence."
Josephine Miles, University Professor of English, UC Berkeley
1911-1985

"Her success as a teacher of poetry is illustrated by a roll call of some of her most famous students, whose own genius, in the best cases, does not eclipse an affinity to her distinctive economy of style and subject."
Marvin Mudrick,
Professor of English and Provost of the College of Creative Studies, UC Santa Barbara
1921-1986

"Like the voices of his favorite authors, the voice in his writing reproduces his own living voice in an almost uncanny way. That voice is cantankerous, loving, aggressive, spiteful, charming; it abounds with energy and fierce humor."
