At the end of the Spring semester, Gene officially retired after a long and distinguished career. Of course, you might not have noticed since he has been in to the office almost every day since, and he intends to continue with his research program. Gene received his Ph.D. in 1965 from Cornell working on “hard pion” physics, and his career has taken him through quark models, weak interactions, effective field theory (especially chiral perturbation theory) and heavy quark physics. He is a “calculator” with a deep interest in topics of experimental interest. Gene’s skill and care permeate the book “Dynamics of the Standard Model” (written with Donoghue and Holstein). He has also been an outstanding and beloved teacher, including winning the College’s first teaching award. We wish him the best in this new phase of life.
