Bob’s wonderful contributions to American University emanated from splendid combinations of characteristics: creativity and realism, courage and self-restraint, unflinching honesty and true compassion, seriousness of purpose and sense of fun.  Bob enjoyed hard work and infused those around him with an appreciation of the value of collaborative accomplishment.  This one man made a great difference in leading an already very good department towards real excellence.  I am so grateful to have witnessed his stewardship and experienced his warm friendship.
