Rensselaer To Induct New Alumni Hall of Fame Members Sept. 23

The Rensselaer Alumni Hall of Fame will induct five new members during a special ceremony at the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) on Friday, Sept. 23, at 4 p.m. The Rensselaer community is invited to participate.

President Shirley Ann Jackson will join several Institute leaders to welcome the new inductees. A public reception will follow the ceremony.

The new inductees are: Rensselaer’s 11th president, Livingston Houston ’13, architect Peter Bohlin ’58, digital camera inventor Steven Sasson ’72, pioneering genome explorer Claire Fraser-Liggett ’77, and molecular geneticist Jeffrey Friedman ’77.

The Alumni Hall of Fame was founded in 1995 to recognize the important and far-reaching contributions made by Rensselaer graduates. The Alumni Hall of Fame last inducted new members in 2009.

Earlier in the day, inductees Claire Fraser-Liggett and Jeffrey Friedman will participate in a special panel discussion at 10 a.m. in the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies auditorium. The topic of the discussion will be: “Biotechnology: Rensselaer’s Impact — Past and Present.”
