University Professor of Chemistry, UC Berkeley
Nobel Laureate

"In all of his activities Calvin was an unpretentious but enthusiastic participant, eager to know why some action was to be taken or how some physical phenomenon could be understood. His genius was in asking the right questions and seeing explanations that did not readily occur to others."
Photograph of William Garfield Dauben William Garfield Dauben
Professor of Chemistry, UC Berkeley

"In Berkeley, Dauben started an active research program in several areas. His studies on the photochemistry of Vitamin D initiated an extensive program in organic photochemistry. He was at the forefront of the surge of activity in this area in the 1960s and 1970s. His work included photochemical studies of dimes and trienes and contributed to the synthesis of strained compounds such as transryclohexene and small-ring systems."

"The molecules studied with microwaves had a variety of complexities. They ranged from rigid molecules, often with nuclear quadrupole interactions yielding bonding information, to molecules with motions such as internal rotation or ring-puckering, as found in five-membered rings, which yielded internal potential energy functions. These studies resulted in detailed information about structure and internal motion never obtained before."
Photograph of Kenneth Sanborn Pitzer Kenneth Sanborn Pitzer
Professor of Chemistry, UC Berkeley

"During this period just before the Second World War, he obtained many important results in thermodynamics and internal rotation of molecules. For example, he discovered that one of the carbon atoms in cyclopentane pops up out of the plane of the other four carbon atoms (to relieve torsional strain), but that the identity of the non-planar carbon rotates around the ring, a phenomenon he dubbed 'pseudorotation.'"

"Among his other notable accomplishments one may mention the development of electrochemical techniques for measuring mass- and heat-transfer coefficients in free and forced convection, analysis of the effect of electrode resistance on local reaction rates, elucidation of the nature of conductivity in two-phase systems, introduction of computers for the calculation of current and potential distributions within electrolytic cells . . ."

Professor of Business Administration and Dean of the College of Commerce, School of Business Administration, and Graduate School of Business Administration, UC Berkeley

"Grether played a major role in changing both the image and the reality of business schools in the United States. . . .
He clearly viewed the proper role of the business school to be similar to that of the medical school. . . .
Business schools at the leading universities across the country began to shift toward the model that Grether had already put in place at Berkeley."

"In the mid-60s George's study of fast reactions unlocked the secret for converting chemical energy directly into laser light. The chemical laser has since taught us much about chemical reactions and about the transfer of energy among molecules. It has also been developed into large and powerful laser systems. Meanwhile, George's high-speed infrared spectroscopic techniques proved adaptable to the devising of instruments for remotely determining the composition of the atmosphere and surface of Mars."

Professor of Chemistry, UC Berkeley

"After his high school mathematics was completed with solid geometry and trigonometry, he discovered independently the power and beauty of calculus. After he had learned as much chemistry as his teacher (the principal) knew, he was given the key to the laboratory, a college laboratory manual, and encouragement to learn more on his own. "

Professor of Accounting and Business Administration and Associate Dean of Women, UC Berkeley

"She was in charge of the laboratory sections in the elementary accounting course at Berkeley. As happens so frequently in such cases, the students learned accounting almost entirely from Catharine. After each section meeting, she presided at a table in a nearby coffee shop to help students; as many as six to twelve would show up at a time. She made the accounting laboratories exciting, a most unusual and exacting accomplishment."

Professor of Moleculary Biology and Biochemistry and Founder of the Virus Laboratory, UC Berkeley
Nobel Laureate

"Stanley's activities in education extended far beyond the campus; his lectures to diverse audiences and especially to lay and medical groups were most effective in promoting scientific ideas and basic research."

Professor of Chemistry, UC Berkeley

"His most important contributions are probably in electrophilic reactions of organometallic compounds and particularly in organomercury chemistry. This was an especially difficult research area because of the changes in reaction course occasioned by small amounts of impurities that could change the mechanism from electrophilic substitution to free-radical reactions, yielding compounds having different stereochemical and even structural properties."

Professor of Botany, UC Berkeley

"His memory is perpetuated by the saxifragaceous genus Jepsonia, and by a host of commemorative specific names. But these tokens are insignificant in comparison with the tremendous debt owed him by every student of Californian natural history. He was remarkably successful both as a teacher and writer in communicating his great enthusiasm for the flora which he had done so much to make understandable."
