  • Dorothy "Dee" Darrigan (RI78) passed away this year. Unfortunately, we currently have no further information with regard to the date or a cause of death.


  • Dr. Charles Bean, Lecturer at NYSC in 1996, died in November that year. He was a retired Professor of Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He was world famous for his fundamental work in magnetism, including small particle magnets and superparamagnetism -- a word he coined. In the later part of his career, he worked in biophysics -- working with porous membranes, expanding the "snake in the grass" theory of electrophoresis; and introduced miniaturization and the AC voltage techniques. He finally had a major influence in developing a theory of magnetotactic bacteria, bringing magnetism and biology together.
