Friday, July 1, 2005

Hundreds of friends, colleagues and associates of Professor Emeritus Bruce A. Bolt packed the Faculty Club this afternoon to celebrate his life.  Professor Bolt, who served as Director of the UC Seismograph Stations for 28 years, passed away on July 21 2005 after a brief illness. Speakers recalled Bruce\'s scholarship, leadership, and verve, and remarked on his love of theatre, wine and above all his family.  His hearty smile and the twinkle in his eye made Bruce instantly recognizable on the Berkeley campus for decades.  We send our condolences to Beverley and her family.  Bruce will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
