Professor Robert M. Kozelka

Williams said goodbye to Professor Robert M. Kozelka, who died in December at the age of 90. Kozelka taught in the math department from 1957 to 1988 and served as its chair for five years. His specialty was statistics, and the department honored him in 2001 by establishing the Robert M. Kozelka Prize in Statistics, awarded each spring to a promising statistics student.
