Contrary to the report published in the Fall 2002 issue of Rochester Review, Doris Greeno Jones ’43, ’44 is alive and well. We regret the error.


George Berg, professor emeritus of environmental medicine at the School of Medicine and Dentistry, died August 2.
Along with his wife, Berg was a leader of the Rochester Committee of Scientific Information and active in the environmental movement in the Rochester area.
Donations may be made to the Center for Environmental Information, 55 St. Paul St., Rochester, N.Y. 14604.

Morton Kaplon ’51 (PhD), a former chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy, died July 4. He was 81.
Kaplon was internationally known for his discoveries in cosmic radiation, elementary particles, and ultrahigh energy interactions. While still a graduate student, he codiscovered the "R-Star" (Rochester Star), which provided the first clear evidence of the production of a large number of mesons in nuclear collisions at the top of the Earth’s atmosphere.
Contributions are being accepted at the Salvation Army.


Walter Fallon, former CEO of Eastman Kodak and longtime member of the University’s Board of Trustees, died July 24. He was 84.
Fallon was elected to the board in 1973. He became a senior trustee in 1989 and a life trustee in 1994. As CEO of Kodak for 11 years, Fallon was credited with leading the company during a period of strong revenue and profit growth.
Memorial gifts may be made to neurology research at Strong Memorial Hospital.

Joseph E. Morrissey ’32, a life trustee who was first elected to the board in 1961, died April 7. He was 90.
A Phi Beta Kappa graduate and a member of Theta Chi fraternity, Morrissey was appointed an honorary trustee in 1969 and a life trustee in 1985.
A longtime employee of the B. Forman Company in Rochester, he started at the company in 1932 as a merchandise trainee and retired in 1975 as CEO.
