We were saddened to learn of the passing of Research Professor Howard Saltsburg on February 11, 2016.

Howard was a long-time member of our department, working as a Research Professor since 1998, and served as Acting Chair from 2001-2002.

Prof. Saltsburg received his Ph.D. degree in Physical Chemistry from Boston University in 1955. After working as a scientist in both private industry and national laboratories, he was a professor of chemical engineering at University of Rochester for more than 20 years.
