It is with great sadness that we report that Professor Emeritus Harold “Bud” Rollins passed away on January 9, 2017. His death follows that of his wife, Jude, in 2015. Bud was a highly valued and much-revered member of the Department of Geology and Planetary Science from the time he joined it in 1969 until his retirement in 2003, and will be missed deeply by all who knew him.
