In Memorium - William F. Hughes

Professor Emeritus William F. Hughes, a member of the Mechanical Engineering family over many years, passed away on Saturday, April 23, 2011 following a long battle with cancer.  Professor Hughes was an alumnus of the department, having earned all his degrees from Carnegie Mellon (B.S.'52, M.S.'53, Ph.D.'55).  In addition to being an alumnus and faculty member, he was the George Tallman Ladd Professor of Mechanical Engineering from approximately 1989 until he retired around 1994.

Professor Hughes will be tremendously missed by the department as a whole, and particularly by the generations of students he taught over the years.  Please join the department in expressing our sincere condolences to his family.
