It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our colleague Professor Emeritus Robert Brown on Friday, April 8, 2022.
Bob joined the UCLA Mathematics Department in 1963 as an assistant professor immediately after receiving his PhD from the University of Wisconsin. He became a full professor in the department in 1973, and served as the Undergraduate Vice Chair, from 1975-1978 and again from 2011 to 2013. He continued teaching until his retirement in 2020.
In 1971, Bob was appointed the UCLA representative of Pacific Journal of Mathematics Board. During his fifty-one years on the Board of Governors for the Journal, he served as Secretary from 1992 to 2008 before taking on the role of President from 2009 to 2022.
