In Memoriam – Emeritus Faculty Ralph Barnhard, 1937-2019

Chemistry and Biochemistry Senior Instructor Emeritus Ralph Barnhard passed away on February 23, 2019.

A UO alum, Ralph earned his Master of Science degree in Chemistry at the University of Oregon in 1965 and joined the department’s teaching faculty in 1966. Over the following 34 years, he taught thousands of chemistry students and served as assistant department head.  Ralph retired in 2000.

Ralph is remembered as an outstanding educator with a wholehearted commitment to his students,  This  sentiment was underscored in April 2011 when the department dedicated the Chemistry Resource Center in his honor – a new classroom and adjoining suite of rooms for peer tutoring and teaching assistant office hours.

Ralph’s obituary can be found in the Register Guard.
