Professor of Geography, UC Berkeley

"Much of Nietschmann's life was dedicated to a rigorous, empathetic, and committed understanding of the workings of culture and environment among indigenous peoples . . . In the 1990s, for example, he established the Maya Mapping Project, which involved Indians from southern Belize in the making of a Maya Atlas to document their homeland and claim their rights to that land. "

"Vance was also a world authority on transportation, the growth and change of urban form, and the historical geography of North America. His pathbreaking books are still classics in their subjects. He was the first urban geographer to be permanently appointed at Berkeley, and the first geographer to receive the campus's Distinguished Teaching Award. His popular courses influenced two generations of geographers, historians, city planners, and architectural historians."

"Throughout his 62 years as a member of the Berkeley faculty, Bob Cockrell had a record of dedicated service to his students, to his department, and notably, to the Berkeley campus."

"His 150 articles and myriad reviews and notes, alongside his four books, covered a remarkably diverse range of subjects, from cork-oak forests to California manufacturing, from fog drip to pre-Columbian ridged fields (which he initially discovered from the air), and from African grasses in the New World to the historical pre-conditions for industrialization."

Professor of Library and Information Studies and Dean of School of Librarianship, UC Berkeley

"Swank spent much of his time as dean trying to bring about a melding of the new information science, being advanced by the computer, with traditional librarianship, which was undergoing a change of vast proportions."

". . . Glacken was engaged in writing his magnum opus on nature and culture in western thought from ancient times to the end of the 19th century, which was published as Traces on the Rhodian Shore in 1967. The book was hailed as a monumental work of scholarship and synthesis, bringing together ideas on this vast and universal topic as they never had been before, transcending geography as a discipline but also being recognized as one of the truly great books written by a geographer in this century."

Professor of Librarianship, UC Berkeley

"He was a fine conversationalist, interesting and interested, and he was deeply concerned about people and their institutions, especially schools and libraries. His expertise in the services, administration, and organization of the latter, based upon the twin pillars of study and solid experience, enabled him to exert a far-reaching influence on public libraries in California and led him to be called upon for advice outside the state from as far away as Australia."

Professor of Italian and Chair of the Italian Department, UC Berkeley

"Anyone who knew Arnolfo knew what civilized good-fellowship was. It was one of his happy traits to be able to talk with all kinds of people--colleagues, students, writers, waiters, shop clerks--without ever being anything other than himself, and with a willingness and an ability to learn from one and all that was as sincere as it is rare. His erudition was remarkable, and we do not say 'formidable'only because he carried it so lightly that it is doubtful that anybody ever felt uncomfortable in talking to him. We were always learning from Arnolfo, even when we were not consciously aware of it."

"He was best known for his publications on climatology (including its history) and cartography (especially map projections and the graphic representation of numerical data), but also made notable contributions in other areas, such as the dynamics of stream flow. The maps and graphs he drew to illustrate his own writings were often true works of art."

Professor of Geography, UC Berkeley

"Sauer deplored any attempt to apply 'universal' principles in the interpretation of cultural--including economic--phenomena, knowing that humanity is composed of diverse groups, each associated with a particular part of the earth's surface, whose cultural differences are apparently permanent. . . . His conversation and correspondence often adverted to the brevity of life in relation to the number of questions and problems he always saw ahead. . . . His own life lasted well beyond the span allotted to man, and he made full use of it by a devotion to humane scholarship encountered too rarely in the academic world."
