My Zoom Call with Santa - Alumni Profile, Alan Viau (PhD ‘84)

Alan Viau as Santa

We can all agree that 2020 has been the most unusual year as we struggle to cope with a global pandemic that has uprooted nearly every aspect of how we live and work. A year ago, terms like ‘social distancing’, and ‘you’re on mute’ meant nothing to me. In 2019, I weaved through grand crowds at the local farmer’s market without a mask, not thinking twice about the proximity of my fellow shoppers.

Remembering Gerald E. Toogood

Gerry Toogood teaching in 1973.

By Lewis Brubacher, colleague and friend

Gerry Toogood died on November 30, 2020. This leaves a large hole in our lives.

When I came to the University of Waterloo in August 1969, it did not take long to get to know Gerry. We soon became good friends in the Chemistry Department, and in later years we worked together on several departmental projects.
