Summer 2017 Special Newsletter in Honor of Richard T. Gray

Dear Friends of Germanics and Alums:

In this special edition of our newsletter we honor our esteemed colleague Rick Gray upon the occasion of his retirement. Colleagues, friends, and former Doktorkinder  share fond memories and help us celebrate Rick’s distinguished career.

A token of our gratitude and a gift to you, Rick, with the warmest wishes for life after Denny from all of us here at the department. Bittersüβ. And we will need lots of chocolate to cope.



Brigitte Prutti
Professor and Chair
