Prof. George and Mary Haddad recently established the George I. and Mary N. Haddad Fellowship Fund to support graduate student education in Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering: Systems.

Prof. Haddad (BSE, MSE, PhD, EE, '56, '58, '63) was Chair of the Department for nearly 19 years between the years of 1975 and 1997. He began as Chair of the ECE Department, and was instrumental in bringing together the department of Computer and Communication Sciences and the Computer Information and Control Engineering graduate program to form the present EECS Department. It is a great honor for the Department to count Prof. Haddad as one of its most esteemed alumni, as well as emeritus faculty member, former Chair, and friend. His remarkable accomplishments and contributions to EECS at Michigan can't possibly be summarized here. Please read more in the FW2005 issue of EECS News.

Mary Haddad was known for her devotion to the Department and the faculty. She was the social center of EECS for many years, organizing numerous parties for faculty and their spouses. She was, and is still, a kind and gracious hostess with a great sense of humor.

Prof. Haddad graduated 58 PhD students, and was a mentor and source of inspiration to countless others. The Department is deeply honored to have his and Mary�s support of EECS graduate students continue in perpetuity through this fellowship.
