Professor of Electrical Engineering, UC San Diego
Nobel Laureate

"During a long and remarkable career, Alfvén made monumental theoretical contributions to plasma physics and its applications in space and in the laboratory. While he is best known for his prediction of the hydromagnetic wave in a conducting medium commonly known as the Alfvén wave, he is generally regarded as the founding father of the field of magnetohydrodynamics, which has had such a profound impact on space physics as well as on controlled thermonuclear fusion."

Professor of Community Medicine and Oncology, UC San Diego

"Dr. Shimkin led with great enthusiasm the effort to have the relationship of smoking and cancer officially recognized by the U.S. Surgeon General. This effort faced powerful opposition from the tobacco industry. In his institutional roles, he was considered a maverick in cancer research as well as spokesman for science; his viewpoints were widely discussed with the biomedical community."

Professor of Medicine, UC San Diego

"All of [his] accomplishments were noteworthy, but the qualities by which those who knew him will most remember Dr. Tisi are his gifts as a
communicator and his capacity for love of, and genuine concern for, his fellow man. These two gifts were reflected in his direction of the UCSD Internal Medicine course which, under his tutelage, achieved a national reputation."

University Professor of Chemistry, UC San Diego
Nobel Laureate

"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."

Professor of English Literature, UC San Diego

"He was a powerful teacher of both undergraduate and graduate students, never demanding of them more than he demanded of himself. He was likewise a powerful department chairman, a leader all the way. . . . He was also a powerful colleague, enabling all of us to understand that, although we could never achieve utopia, we must nonetheless strive for it."

Professor of Physics, UC San Diego
Nobel Laureate

"There is little hope that we will see her match again soon. Her own work has been a decisive influence in shaping solid state, atomic, and nuclear physics. Without her, hardly anyone is left who understands all of physics and teaches it in a universal way."

Professor of Biology, UC San Diego

"In coming to the University of California at San Diego in 1960, Professor Bonner was attracted mainly by the youthful vigor of the new campus and the clear dedication of its leaders to the development of an uncompromisingly first-rate institution. He quickly became one of those leaders."
