It is with tremendous sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing of our dear friend and colleague, Professor Emeritus Art Sylvester. In addition to his scholarly distinction, he was a guiding presence in the department for over 50 years. He inspired literally thousands of students through his passion for field studies, building a vast army of devoted mentees. He leaves behind a towering legacy. If you would like to add a tribute to Art, please include it here. The department plans a celebration of his life likely held next fall; we will provide an update when we know more.
