Dr. Rhoads' Memorial Service: February 7

On Thursday, February 7, at 4 p.m. the Department of Surgery will host a Memorial Service to celebrate the life of Dr. Jonathan Rhoads. The program will be held in Irvine Auditorium and a reception will follow. The University community is invited to attend. Dr. Rhoads died January 3 at the age of 94 (Almanac January 8).

Rubinstein Memorial Fund

Many people have asked how to make contributions to the fund in honor of Al Rubinstein (Almanac January 8) that I announced at the memorial service. The fund will be used to support an annual prize for excellence in teaching by a graduate student in political science at Penn, along with a plaque that will be prominently displayed in Stiteler Hall.

Contributions to the fund should be in the form of a check made out to Trustees, University of Pennsylvania. There should be a note on the check or in a letter directing the gift to the Rubinstein Memorial Fund. Checks may be sent either to:

Rubinstein Memorial Fund, c/o Political Science Department,
University of Pennsylvania, 217 Stiteler Hall, Philadelphia, PA 19104-6215

or to:

SAS External Affairs, Suite 300, 3440 Market Street
University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104-3325.
