I am saddened to report...

the passing of my mentor and graduate adviser, Stanley A. Schumm.  I have just learned through e-mail that he died yesterday afternoon, and although he had not been well the last few years, "his mind was sharp to the end."

I studied with Stan at Colorado State University from 1979 to 1983, earning both a MS and Ph.D. under his guidance and support.  His publication record on fluvial geomorphology is unmatched, and here is a brief bio.  My sincerest condolences go to his wife, Ethel, and his family during these difficult times.

  1. What a bummer. Stan wrote some wonderful textbooks that have enhanced many students' understanding of Geomorphology. He will be missed.
