May 1998 Newsletter
- John M. Lynn (MT73) passed away on February 5,
1998 after an eleven-year battle with cancer. John had graduated summa
cum laude from Rice University in 1977 with a BS in Chemical
Engineering. He received his MS in Chemical Engineering from Stanford
in 1978 and worked for Shell Oil Company for eighteen years in the
Houston, TX area. His wife Susan survives him.
- We also deeply mourn the passing on May 8, 1998 of
former U.S. Senator Jennings Randolph of West Virginia
-- a longtime supporter and friend of the National Youth Science Camp.
He had originally been elected to the U.S. House in 1932 and served
seven terms; in 1958 he won election to the U.S. Senate and remained
until he retired in early 1985 (when he was well into his 80's). From
1963 until 1984, he was the host of the annual NYSC Senate Luncheon when
the delegates visited Washington, DC. Senator Randolph was
especially known for being the author of the amendment which gave
18-year-olds the right to vote.
