Robert Gardner was a member of the Mathematics Department since 1971, and he contributed significantly to its development in many ways. We regret his untimely death. To honor his memory we list below some links that provide more details about his career and his personal qualities.

The link “Remembering the Mathematics of Robert Brown Gardner” leads to an article written by George Wilkens, one of Robert Gardner’s Ph.D. students. Professor Wilkens is presently a faculty member at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
