1924-1998
"Ken Norris was always an idea man, and one of his greatest ideas . . . was the UC Natural Reserve System (NRS). As early as the late 1940s, . . . he began to notice how quickly field study sites were literally losing ground to encroaching development. . . . Over time, his frustration with such disturbances . . . engendered the notion that perhaps the University of California could acquire certain lands . . . that would represent a broad sampling of all the state's habitat types and make them available for teaching and research. After all, as Ken Norris would later say, 'You can't study nature without a nature to study.'"

Eduardo Carrillo
Professor of Art, UC Santa Cruz
1937-1997


"Armed with the instinctive immediacy of a perpetual child--fascinated with the colors, shapes, textures and rhythm of the sensory world--Ed probed and prodded the land, here and in his beloved Baja, where he'd go each year to putter with a favorite uncle, soak up the light of his grandmother's village, work on a never-ending building project and open himself to inspiration."

1928-1997
"John's freedom to explore 'rather odd things!' took him in several directions. In the 1970s he published a fascinating article on 'Right Wing Rhetoric'and a short piece on 'Animal Categories and Terms of Abuse.'"

Provost of Cowell College and Professor of History, UC Santa Cruz, and Assistant Professor of Historical Studies, UC Los Angeles
1917-1995
"Contrarieties and contradictions, the mysteries of human conduct, did not disturb him and he responded feelingly to words of Walt Whitman's, which conveyed this unfathomable complexity.

Do I contradict myself?
Very well, I contradict myself.
I contain multitudes."

Professor of Anthropology, UC Santa Cruz
1933-1989
"In 1981, Professor Tanner published a path-breaking book, On Becoming Human (Cambridge University Press) in which she traced the transition from ape to australopithecine in human evolution, based on her analysis of fossil and archaeological data. The book, which has been reprinted twice, presented a powerful new theory about women's roles in human evolution and was widely praised."

1924-1989
"His marvelous sense of humor was legendary. But, for many of us who knew and worked with Joe in professional terms, in addition to his great learning, his sensitivity to literary problems, and his superb teaching, one of his extraordinary characteristics was what can only be called his wisdom; his unerring capacity to know what was right in professional and in human terms."

"He stretched and even redefined the bounds of what constituted architectural history, both in his scholarly books and in the numerous journalistic pieces he constantly produced, gaining worldwide acclaim among a variety of audiences--academic, professional, and popular."
