On May 10, more than 60 alumni from across the country and as far away as Germany surprised Robert Dalzell at his last class before his retirement as the Fred Rudolph Professor of American Culture. Dalzell was granted emeritus status at the end of the year along with the late Ernest Brown, professor of music; Jean-Bernard Bucky, the William Dwight Whitney Professor of Arts & Theatre; Lynda K. Bundtzen, the Herbert H. Lehman Professor of English; Markes E. Johnson, the Charles L. MacMillan Professor of Natural Sciences; Glyn P. Norton, the Willcox B. & Harriet M. Adsit Professor of International Studies and professor of Romance languages; Alex P. Willingham, professor of political science; and Reiko Yamada, professor of Japanese. The group represents more than 240 years combined of teaching, scholarship and service.
