Nobel Laureates


Walter S. Vincent

August 4, 2012

Dear Colleagues:

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Walter S. Vincent, Ph.D., who died August 4th in Falmouth, Mass. A former professor and department chair at University of Delaware, he was also for many years associated with MBL.

He served as a Corporation member since 1954 and a Trustee from 1967 to 1975, was an alumnus of the Embryology course (1949), served on the faculty of the Microbial Ecology course (1979-1984), and was a Whitman Investigator in 1954 and from 1985 to 1987.

The MBL flag has been lowered in his honor.
