Memorial Service for Ralph Kavanagh

The Physics, Mathematics and Astronomy Division invites the Caltech community to attend the memorial service for Ralph Kavanagh, professor of physics, emeritus, who passed away August 16 in Pasadena, California. He was 86. In addition to the usual handful of graduate students he mentored, Kavanagh also taught the Advanced Physics Lab, beginning in the early 1970s and continuing until his retirement in 2000. This two-term course was required of all seniors majoring in physics.
