Gurden Alois Mooser
Assistant Chancellor of University Relations, UC Santa Cruz
"The distinctive undergraduate collegiate organization of the campus required significant partnership with the private sector. With dedication, a keen sense of humor, attention to detail, organization, absolute honesty, and concern for both the individual and institution, he was a remarkably able spokesperson and fundraiser for the University. . . . He enriched our lives and helped to establish the Santa Cruz campus as a major educational and research institution and cultural resource."
Dean McHenry
Founding Chancellor, UC Santa Cruz
"McHenry served as UC's representative on the 'survey team' that drafted California's Master Plan for Higher Education in 1960--a blueprint that defined specific roles and admissions standards for the state's University of California, State College (later State University) and Community College systems. . . . Ten years after his hiring as chancellor of UCSC, McHenry had overseen the development of $63 million in construction projects and the hiring of more than 1,000 academic and nonacademic employees."
