Leo Vroman’s remarkable little book Blood, 1967, inspired much of my career. We were fortunate to have him as a consultant on the NHLBI contract at the U Denver. He suggested immobilized albumin as a likely coagulation-resistant surface.
A lab I TA’ed with Dennis Olsen.
My first grant was written and funded as a graduate student at the U of Denver. This Contractor’s Report was authored with my PhD Supervisor, Dr. Paul Predecki.
The second (1965) completely revised Tower List written , edited, published by the SJSU Honor Society, Tau Delta Phi, built on the pioneering initial 1964 version
The Tower List was one of the first individual faculty evaluations by students. It generated substantial criticism and accolades.
Bogosian’s Philosophy of Personal Values class was a real eye- and brain-opener for me in Spring, 1965.
Publication of the Tower List generated public and college-university interest nation-wide. This mimeographed form letter aided in the response to those inquiries.

This lab course and group was incredibly valuable. Dennis Olsen became a life-long good friend. Neil Beckley was an interesting roommate, together with Tom Hogan and Igor Skaredoff.
These are the Notes from my first Materials Science course, taught by Zuhar Munir. It opened me up to a whole new dimension. I immediately changed majors from EE to Mat. Sci. Thanks, Zuhar.
