Retiring UW professors to be honored

On Saturday, May 20th, the University of Wisconsin-Madison will honor Drs. Thomas Lillesand, Frank Scarpace and Alan Vonderohe for their nearly 90 years of combined service to the University and for their greater contributions to the field of geospatial science. All three plan to retire from the UW at the end of the spring 2006 semester. The professional community will pay tribute to them with an afternoon symposium and evening dinner banquet at the Pyle Center on the UW-Madison Campus.

Registration for the symposium is free. The dinner banquet will cost $30 per person. Pre-registration will be required for both events. Registration information will be posted here after April 10th.

In addition, a “Book of Letters” will be compiled for each of these gentlemen. If you would like to send a letter with your reflections and best wishes to Tom, Frank and/or Al, please mail it to:

Marcia Verhage Environmental Remote Sensing Center 1225 West Dayton Street, Room 1239 University of Wisconsin Madison, Wisconsin 53706 verhage@wisc.edu

Finally, if your company or agency is interested in co-sponsoring these events though a financial contribution, please contact Marcia at (608) 262-1585.

We hope you will join us!
