39 years involved with topics ranging from botany to mycology and from histology to toxicology but his real passion was microbiology

By Cheryl Duxbury

As Ron Socha and I sit over coffee in my office and discuss his upcoming retirement, I find myself a little nostalgic at the thought of losing such a valued and dedicated member of our department. Ron will officially retire in December 2012 and he has witnessed many changes both within the department and at the University level.

40 Years with UW Biology Students: “wonderful, challenging, frustrating, full of ideas”

Dale Weber is setting up a microscope on the matte black bench-top of an undergraduate teaching lab.  Beside him there is a large widescreen monitor displaying the image of a purple hemalum stained tissue.  As he changes the magnification the image comes into focus with the brightness adjusting itself.  I recently spoke with Dale about the over forty years he has spent in Waterloo as a student and a technician in the Biology Department.
